Programming LAT vs telnet (IP)?

» close window

The Question is:

We are currently using LAT with our in-house shipping application. We have to
 turn on bridging on our switches which causes trouble on the network.  We
 would like to use TCP/IP instead of LAT to make calls to the radio frequency
 portion of the application
How do we create a TCP/IP port that will act in the same manner as LAT but will
 use sockets instead of $qio's ?????????

The Answer is :

  LAT and IP are different, and with differing capabilities.
  You will have to rewrite the existing LAT access to use sockets, or
  you could potentially rewrite the code to use the $qio interface to
  the IP package -- please see the IP documentation for details on both
  approaches.  Also see the discussions around "reverse telnet" here
  in the Ask The Wizard area.
  Moving to IP may or may not resolve your problems with your switches,
  of course.
