TCP-Triggered Display Relaunch

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Is there any way to remotely trigger a relaunch of Watchout display software on a display machine? The only way I know to do it is accessing the computer directly (or through VPN). I'm looking to try to add it to a control panel.

Running Watchout 6.7.

No.

There is a reset command, possibly that could provide what you need?

Next closest you would get is two steps - power down via IP command, power up via Wake On LAN.

I haven't tried it myself but you might be able to send

load ""      (to unload the current show, might send an error that there is no show with an empty name)

and then

load "yourShowName" to reload the show again.

It would of course not restart WATCHPOINT but the actual show file.

that should return an error.

There is a specific command to unload the current show.

unload

with no arguments. This command requires authenticate 2 and only affects the one computer it is sent too.
