PGXL wireshark dump

Hi all of you lucky new PGXL amp owners...

I am wondering if any of you would be willing to send me a wireshark dump of PGXL communications, particularly with respect to SSDR?

In looking at the FlexLib API I can see there are "Amplifier" objects which I am assuming get discovered then SSDR allows some control of those amplifiers.

I don't have a PGXL but I am considering writing a small utility to make my SPE amp look and feel like a PGXL to basically fool SSDR into thinking it has a PGXL connected.

In order to do this I sort of need to see the communication stream so I can create my little utility to mimic that stream.

Alternatively if Flex Radio had an API document on the PGXL broadcasts, commands etc that would be even better.

Port 9008 is the only port used by PGXL Utility: UDP for discovery and TCP for control

The SPE amps have only a partial function / control overlap when compared to PGXL. I have taken a different approach to control my SPE AMP in SSDR/W, SSDR/M and Maestro. If you have not already run FRStack, run it then look at the SPE tab or SPE Window. Now look at the FRStack SPE menu in SSDR added via the new SPOTS feature.

Hi Mark,

Aware of that.  Yes understand the partial overlap too.  It is more of a science experiment than anything to see if I can sort of make my SPE look like a PGXL.
