Hi everyone, I'm wanting to open up the floor for your opinions and past experiences with designing a network communications architecture. - There will be one server, written in LabVIEW on a Windows based PC. - There will be multiple remote clients programmed in LabVIEW on cRIOs. - All devices will be connected via a wireless network, and all cRIO clients should have good throughput to the server. - It should be designed for bidirectional data flow, however the clients will do most of the talking. - Data sent will be, status packets, images, PDF documents, and other information. - Clients will not be continuously sending data, such as a typical DAQ system, but more reporting on events. I'm leaning towards the TCP socket option, but would like to consider higher-level forms of NI-propriety designs, such as Network Shared Variables or Network Streams, which I haven't had huge amounts of exposure to. Thanks for your opinions. Brenton
