help with NetClient
« on: May 14, 2017, 06:26:02 PM »
My application is getting a error -3
I would like some help to understand the problem.

The error states that I have "too many nettalk netauto instances on one machine"

How many is too many and how do I calculate how many instances I have running?

thanks

Hi David,

>> The error states that I have "too many nettalk netauto instances on one machine"
>> How many is too many

the Default is 5. (on the same UDP port number).
You can control both the maximum nnumber, and the UDP port number, using NetOptions.

>> and how do I calculate how many instances I have running?

More specifically instances running on _this_ machine? That's more tricky to calculate - the obvious answer if you get this error though is one more than MaxInstances is set to <g>.

cheers
