I'm trying to write an app which can show some information from X-Plane 11 on my other Mac.

I can create multiple UDP clients to get >1 sets of data, but I was wondering if it was possible to use the same client instead. Seeing as there is a reference code in the datagram being sent it would appear to be the case but I have not managed to make it work.


Further testing revealed that I needed to put a bit of a delay between sending the messages on the client.

Also, it seemed having a frequency of 4 on the two test messages I sent after one another failed as well.

It depends on the type of UDP--some of our protocol support multi-external program, some don't. Unfortunately I don't think we currently have any list or notes in the UDP doc that explicitly states which is which.
