Listen to multiple TCP ports on exe

Go to solution



I have multiple exe's that I want to read the front panel.  I found this knowledge article and it works very nicely.


In the article you need to set the port in the ini file of the exe.  My question is is it possible to open multiple ports?



I would like to specify more than 1 port.

The settings in your ini file are for the server side of the VI Server. There is only one port opened by the server (but it can handle multiple client requests in parallel). The Client side opens a connection to the server whenever you do an Open Application with a remote network machine name as identifier and the according port number as configured for that application instance in the ini file. If you have multiple LabVIEW executables on the same machine the configured port number in each ini file needs to be unique on that machine and depending which port number you pass to the Open Application node you will establish a connection with the according application instance.
