Additional information for Pros:
IRTrans Software architecture
• The IRTrans System
is based on a TCP/IP Client / Server architecture.
Client and Server communicate using the (official) TPC and UDP port
• At the same time
(almost) any number of clients can connect to the IRTrans server.
All of them can send and receive.
• The IRTrans Server
can manage 16 busses with 16 devices each = 256 devices.
• Using the TCP/IP
structure it is possible to access the system from anywhere (using
Internet / Intranet connections).
TCP/IP Netmasks allow to limit the access to the server to certain IP
• The Client/Server
Software is Open Source and runs on Windows and LINUX using a Single
• The server
completely controls the learn process for IR codes. They are stored in a
central database compromised of ASCII files. Addressing of the devices
in a multizone systems is controlled by the server, too.
• In addition to the
IRTrans socket interface the server also has a LIRC / WinLIRC compatible
Due to the flexible Opensource architecture of the IRTrans System and
the TCP/IP server the system can easily be adapted to different
applications. Each plugin connects to the IRTrans server. This has got
several advantages: The majority of the code has got to be implemented
only once - in the IRTrans server. Furthermore almost any number of
clients can connect to the server and use the system at the same time.
Because of the TCP/IP connection client and server can run on different
systems that can connect over the internet. These systems can even be
installed on different operating systems.
Applications not mentioned here can mostly be controlled through Girder.

used to control lots of other applications and can therefore also be
used as an universal interface to control applications.

The IRTrans System is compatible with LIRC and WinLIRC. That means all
clients with LIRC or WinLIRC interfaces can be used with the IRTrans
system. LIRC or WinLIRC do not need to be installed. As the LIRC /
WinLIRC interface is part of the IRTrans server no additional software
