Work around for UDP sockets in fsuipc5

Recommended Posts

Since LUA sockets no longer work in FSUIPC5 I came up with this work around:

Thread

First I created two virtual serial ports with this free app com0com

it creates two virtual serial ports and links them together. One port is connected to a LUA script with com read and write and the other is connected to this

free app CommTunnel. this app even has a window so you can see whats being sent and received.

I use esp8266 12f wifi chips with mcp23017 gpio expanders(I2C version)  with adafruit library(for mcp23017) and arduino IDE for programming. (ordered in bulk from china they are very

cheap and you can chain 8 via I2C for 128 gpio ports on one esp12f). The 8266 is more powerful and has more memory and costs alot less than an arduino and has WIFI. you can get the

nodemcu devkit that has a serial interface on board but i am trying to cut out as many wires as possible.
