Im using the IP node in one of my patches to get the computer’s and router’s IP, but there is no (obvious) way to select the adapter to use.
On one machine it worked fine and selected my wireless connection, but on another it chose a virtual network adapter, throwing 120 errors per second in the TTY window almost bringing VVVV to a stand-still. After disabling that adapter it went for the Bluetooth adapter causing the same error. I cant remember the exact wording now as i’m on my mac, but something about "no socket available … " and IP was shown as 0.0.0.0. Only after disabling that one too did it choose (the obvious) network adapter, ie. the only real network adapter that was connected to the network.
All this could be solved by having a dropdown selection of all available network adapters and maybe not constantly throwing an error, but only doing that once : ) Alternatively it could skip to the next network adapter until it finds one that has a real IP and not 0.0.0.0, although i guess thats better done by using nodes to check for that.
I only just started using vvvv, so maybe i have overlooked something, but some help would be really appreciated as my patch will run on several different computers and i dont want to have to disable all network adapters except for one on each machine.
ps. i love vvvv !
