Sending TCP packets


#1

1) Give a description of the problem
Is it possible to send TCP packets via a Piston? We have some commercial displays that have the ability to be controlled via TCP packets. You can read more about it in the manual here (starts on page 65): http://siica.sharpusa.com/portals/0/downloads/Manuals/PN-UH601_701_Operation_Manual.pdf
But basically you send TCP packets over port 10002 to the IP of the TV with a specific string of Hex to issue the commands.

Hi, I’ve not tried this myself, but wonder if the following may work for you?

Ill give it a shot, but I believe that POST is not the same thing. Im basically looking to sent serial data in a TCP packet I believe

My first thought is use webCoRE to send a command to a RaspberryPi, and let the Pi send the specific command to your TV.

I thought about that too, but we were hoping to not need an external device. But its starting to look that way.
