EXEC_SEND_TCP stopped working

Post by fred48fm » 13 Jul 2020 15:27

Hi,

Since some time we expreience troubles using the EXEC_SEND_TCP command.

Did anything changed in the command syntax ?

The command is used to update the RDS data and look like :
EXEC_SEND_TCP SERVERIP:PORT|DPS=RDS DATA ${CRLF}${CRLF}

The command work using other tcp softwares.

Any idea ?
We use this with a Deva RDS encoder.

Thanks in advance

Fred

Nothing was changed since many versions!
So if it used to work before, I assume some changes in your network, firewall etc. ?

That's weird.
Nothing really changed (tryed on 2 computers and 2 different networks).
The strangest part is that the script is sometime executed correctly for long time, before being ignored for hours.

In the meantime, i solved this by moving this command to an external tool "packet sender", with the exec_shell_command.
The exact same command using this tool work successfully everytime.

Thanks for your time,

Fred

Maybe a virus scanner or any other blocker which stops it silently.

So if I understand you correctly, it works fine for a longer time, then it stops for some hours and finally it works good again?!
That however doesn’t sound like a software error.

We also have a Deva RDS encoder.
How can you have a slogan and now playing alternately appear on the rds.
We use right now
EXEC_SEND_TCP SERVERIP: PORT | DPS = $ {artist} - $ {title} $ {CRLF}

Many RDS encoders support alternating text tru special text sequence. E.g. ST: http://help.stereotool.com/rds_encoder_texts.shtml

I am not familiar with the Deva product, but maybe it also supports something like ST does?

But ProppFrexx doesn’t support this internally, as it is not an RDS encoder.
