Hi, I am interested to buy LabView and I am going to use to control some devices. LabView would be residing on a windows machine and I will need to take input from a unix machine and provide output to it. I was thinking of using sockets and using TCP or UDP to do that. Can you suggest how can I communicate with a C socket program residing on UNIX machine with a labview program on windows? are there any features in LabView by which I can do that. I am new and thats why I needed to know.. your early response will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
