    Hi,

    1. A device is TCP client. Right after it connects to Communicator (TCP server), it sends a string that identifies this device.
    2. Communicator compares the given string with “Call Number” of existing devices. If matched, communication continues.

    thank you for answer, but that string how is interpreted in comunicator ? maybe as ascii?
    Receive (4/4): ˇˇ^^

    the value that the device send is 41377 witch hex is a1 a1 followed by e5 e5 and the comunicator intrprets like this: Receive (4/4): ˇˇ^^

    Exists a method that comunicator intrpret id’s like decimal numbers ?

    Yes, Communicator interprets like ASCII.
    We can update Communicator to support HEX, but currently our team is working hard, so we can implement the changes on commercial way.
