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 )
