Maybe this is a stupid question I have read cover to cover several times the fine book API Primer by G3WGV. I am having a connection issue and want to make sure I am not missing something. In the Radio.cs there is a routine that can be called by Send Command("keep alive enable") is this something that I need to send to the radio on a regular basis so that it does not ignore my connection once I am connected?
Excuse my ignorance but I am dealing with some in consistencies after I connect regarding sending commands to the radio. It is either due to a firewall issue or the radio no longer wishing to talk to me. I am leaning to a firewall issue since as long as I run the application within the IDE there is no issue but if I try to run it stand alone not within the IDE it works sometimes and sometimes it does not work.
I have no issue getting the discovery packets and decoding them, parsing the info then connecting to the radio using that information within the IDE however outside the IDE I can obtain the discovery packets, get the information from those then about every other time I can establish a connection with the radio successfully while within the IDE it connects everytime.
I am using Win 7 and turning the firewall off has not seemed to have any effect.
I remembered seeing keep alive and was thinking that maybe I need to generate this at a specific interval to maintain the connection.
Thanks in advance.
