Opens a TCP network connection using a specified address and port or service name.
Use the TCP Close Connection node to close the connection.
The address with which you want to establish a connection. This address can be in IP dot notation or it can be a hostname. If you do not specify an address, LabVIEW establishes a connection to the local computer.
The port or name of the service to which you want to establish a connection. If you specify a service name, LabVIEW queries the NI Service Locator for the port number that the server registered. If you wire a value of 0, LabVIEW returns an error. remote port or service name can accept a numeric or a string input.
Time, in milliseconds, that the node waits to complete before returning a timeout error. A value of -1 indicates to wait indefinitely.
Default: 60,000 ms (1 minute)
Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Default: No error
The local connection port. Some servers allow connections to clients that use port numbers only within a specific range that is dependent on the server. If the value is 0, the operating system selects an unused port.
A network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the connection. Use this value to refer to this connection in subsequent node calls.
Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
