FME Transformers: 2024.1



Related Transformers


Sends raw data to the specified host, which may be another FME workspace running in a different process, (located on the same machine or on a different machine), or any client application that communicates over TCP/IP.

To transport data from one FME process to another: use the TCPIPSender transformer in the source FME workspace to send data to a TCPIPReceiver transformer in the receiving FME workspace.

Note  Can be used in conjunction with TCPIPReceiver.

Usage Notes

  • To set up a data stream between two FME workspaces using the TCPIPReceiver and TCPIPSender transformers:

    • One workspace is the designated "establisher" of the transport stream. If there are multiple transport streams between workspaces, one workspace must be the establisher of all the streams, and the other will connect to those transport streams. This is regardless of whether the individual transporters are sending or receiving data.
    • The establishing workspace must be started before the workspace that is connecting. A TCPIPReceiver/TCPIPSender cannot successfully connect to a transport stream that is not already established.
    • For each transport channel, there must be a different port that is used for each server machine.

This transformer has no output ports.


Editing Transformer Parameters

Transformer parameters can be set by directly entering values, using expressions, or referencing other elements in the workspace such as attribute values or user parameters. Various editors and context menus are available to assist. To see what is available, click beside the applicable parameter.
