I'm missing something but can't figure out what.
I'm trying to use the network control socket. The mythbox is setup in
the general settings to use port 6546
Using fedora ( so it's nc not netcat) I enter:
nc 192.168.1.96 6546 on my laptop, to try to contact the myth box.
If I ssh into the mythbox and try 'nc -l 6546' on that end, it says 'nc:
Address already in use'. So myth is doing its bit.
I then tried any number of variants of 'nc IP port' with 'jump
programguide' after, and with echo before, with | and >, with cat and
anything else I could think of.
Nothing. I am clueless. Can someone give me a clue?
