Hardware Support: Methods to Connect Multiple Computers to a LocoNet® Layout

To connect multiple computers to your LocoNet®-equipped layout using a single LocoBuffer, use LocoNet over TCP. It uses standard TCP/IP protocols to communicate. See the LocoNetOverTCP LbServer, which is external to JMRI.

The LocoNetOverTCP uses a separate non-Java server process, LbServer, that communicates using plain ASCII String messages over TCP/IP sockets, allowing non-Java nodes to also share the one LocoBuffer.
