The TCP Settings allow the user to manage TCP Connections and cover the necessary data to provide functionality to the TCP Nodes.

TCP Communication in Incari is available as a plugin and is enabled as default. However, in the case that it is disabled in the Plugins Editor, it will not appear in the Project Settings. Please refer to the Plugins Editor to find out more information.

Name is an identifying name of a TCP connection chosen at the user's discretion.

URL is the TCP endpoint (either a URL or IP address) and is only relevant when Is Server is set to off.

Local Port represents two different things depending on whether Is Server is toggled on or not. If switched to on, it is the port number being listened to. If switched off, it is the port number the remote device is listening on.

Is Local IPv6 can be enabled or disabled. IPv6 is the newest version of the Internet Protocol. More information about IPv6 can be found in the External Links section.

Is Server is the state the connection finds itself in. This is either toggled on (where a local server is started and waits for incoming connections, similar to an HTTP server) or toggled off (where a connection is initiated to a remote server, similar to functions associated with the HTTP Client Node).

Automatic Reconnect can be enabled or disabled. It keeps the TCP connection open in the case that it has been broken.
