NatNet on QNX

Post by smith32 » Tue Mar 30, 2010 9:43 am


I'm trying to develop a NatNet client to run on a QNX machine (unix-like real-time operating system). One solution would be to use built in QNX network routines to grab and parse the mulitcast data (similar code to what was posted in the MATLAB thread). However, it would be nice to use the NatNet SDK to develop the client, but this would require QNX NatNet libraries. I know this might be a long shot, just curious if the developers and support team here have thought about it.

Also, what about running a NatNet client on a Linux machine? Is that doable?

Right now only Win32 is supported for the NatNet client.

Unix versions of the client library are on our feature request list for NatNet but have not been scheduled.

QNX NatNet libraries would more than likely need to be done on a contract basis. Contact support if your are interested in this path.

I would recommend direct depacketization for now. The latest NatNet SDK has a newer Packet Client sample than the posted code.
