Send data to a socket


Good morning,

Does anyone know of an activity that can send data to a remote socket?
For example, send JSON format data to a configurable socket number on a
configurable IP address?

Thanks in advance,

Scott

    Hi Scott,

    We would normally send JSON data via the 'Get Web Page Content' activity
    - maybe not the most aptly named activity - you can use a HTTP post to
    send the JSON request to configurable address and port with optional
    authentication, proxy etc.
    The benefit of doing this is that the service listening returns HTTP
    responses including response headers, data, status codes, error data
    etc.
    That is the norm, but you don't say what type of socket so this may be
    useless info if its not a webservice at the target end.

    We don't have an activity that sends data specifically to a socket but a
    consultant could easily develop one for you if needs to go down that
    path.
