How to Transfer Data Between More than 2 Computers Using MatLab?

2 views (last 30 days)
Is there an easy way to communicate information between multiple computers at the same time? Ideally, I'd like it to work consistently with 3 or more devices, but it won't always be the same couple devices trying to connect.

There is no easy answer. Without knowing the details of what you want to do I can't really say what maybe the best solution for you.
I would advise you not to limit yourself to using just Matlab. You can also potentially use a webserver.

For more context, I am trying to create a simple video game where players take turns until someone wins.

Perhaps you can use a web server stack such as WAMP. You can program a rest API in PHP and store the state in My SQL. The clients can get the data from API using MATLAB webread and send the data using webwrite.

A second potential option for you would be to use Jeremy's MatlabWebSocket from File exchange.
One of the matlab instance can create the Websocket server, the rest can create Websocket clients.
