I am trying to spawn a process on an embedded computer from another computer over a qnet network. Once the embedded process is spawned, I want to be able to do in and out calls (on the embedded computer hardware).
I have tried using a system ( on …) call to start the embedded process, but when the embedded process does a “name_attach”, it creates a new “computer_name” under the /net directory. The new name has a “.” in front of it, and is invisible to all other computers on the network (so my name_open call won’t work).
I have tried spawning with the spawnl as well. This does allow the two computers to connect to each other but I think that my IO calls are being directed to the host PC rather than the embedded computer.
Re-reading what I just wrote… seems confusing. If anyone can make sense of what I wrote and help me out, please do.
