However to make the device fully functional, the TCP connection must be working as well.

To test your connections, use the Connectivity Test feature in Xilica Designer.

  1. Open Xilica Designer's Network View. Double click the device block.
  2. A Device Setup dialog will appear. Select the Network tab.
  3. At the bottom, you will see a Connectivity Test section.
  4. Select TCP Test to perform a TCP test to the device. Select UDP Test to perform a UDP test to the device.

If you are having TCP connection issues, the most common TCP issue is related to your computer firewall. You may want to disable your computer firewall to verify the issue.
