The UDP Nodes provide a means for the user to perform several actions within the UDP communications protocol. UDP, or User Datagram Protocol, is part of the Internet protocol suite and allows for communication to occur with other hosts that are part of an IP network. To use the UDP Nodes in Incari, the user needs to locate the UDP Attributes in Project Settings and add a Connection.

This form of 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 and render the UDP Nodes unavailable. Please refer to the Plugins Editor to find out more information.

UDP Guideline

These are the guidelines for incorporating UDP Communication into a Project.

    • UDP Send sends a datagram through the established connection to the specified UDP endpoint.

    • On UDP Packet Receive executes once a UDP Message is received.

  • To properly stop a connection, see the General Guideline on the Communications Introduction page.
