Code Example - C# - How to send commands to a smart camera over TCP/IP

Recommended Posts

  1. Add the following reference to use Microsoft TCP sockets:
using System.Net.Sockets;
  1. Create the client object:
System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient clientSocket = new System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient();
  1. Connect to the camera:

int port = System.Convert.ToInt32("49211");

clientSocket.Connect("", port); Create stream object:


  1. Send data to the camera:

NetworkStream serverStream = clientSocket.GetStream();

Prepare text to send (sending jobinfo command - see user manual for details):

byte[] outStream = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("jobinfo\r\n");


Send the data:

serverStream.Write(outStream, 0, outStream.Length);


  1. Receive data from the camera:

byte[] inStream = new byte[10025];

serverStream.Read(inStream, 0, (int)clientSocket.ReceiveBufferSize);

string returndata = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(inStream);

For the complete VisualStudio project, see attachment.
