This applies to MXWendler version 4.2 and above


Pooling MXWendler systems via time synchronisation

Tests to do before starting MXWendler

Can you ping all the computers from one host?
Can you ping back?
Does your router/switch allow broadcasting?
Are the firewalls turned off?
Does the admin account have a password ( Windows 7)?


1. Turn on osc receiving for every machine on port 7000.

2. Create a simple osc testing application with eg. pd and send some commands to *any machine* from *any machine*.

3. Turn on Broadcast and receive time for every machine. all machines will send there time until they receive packet from a machine with lower ip, then they switch to receiving.

4. Broadcast to the subnet: ( subnet may have different IP ).

5. Broadcast to the ports where the machines are listening ( 7000 ).

Important: sometimes Windows 7 does not allow broadcasting, then adress the other machine with its ip directly ( eg. instead of ).
