Is it possible to create a TCP client with AIR for PlayBook (I would rather UDP but from what I read it is not available for AIR mobile)?
What I am trying to do is just send short string to a PC that are in the same WiFi.
I have seen and tried this app and it says it uses TCP connection but I do not know whether it was created with AIR or not.
Any information is really appreicated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

jtegen thanks for the quick replies.
From what I know UDP is not supported for mobile AIR but I should try the isSupported (which I was not aware) to make sure.
I had seen the Socket class but was not sure if it was supported for mobile AIR.

You can also take a look at as3 peer to peer classes, they might help you and are supported on mobile version.
I use it on my app Remote Media Player and Remote Control for communications between Playbook, Bb10, Android and ios devices.

TCP works fine.
UDP (multicasting) and UPnP by extension don't work.
Which means you cant autodetect network devices (thus can never be a true DLNA client) and will have trouble with streaming video as you need to do it over TCP.
