Send and receive data via TCP and UDP

The ability to send/receive network commands over TCP IP. The serial node set is good for controlling equipment but is distance limited. Lots of equipment has Ethernet control for automating startup and shutdown etc. Some other software packages also offer UDP multicasting too. This would be excellent for long-term installations.

The proposed nodes would allow sending and receiving bytes of data over TCP and UDP. Like the existing Send/Receive Serial Data nodes, they would have a Data input/output port, and would be used together with nodes such as Convert Data to Text / Convert Text to Data.
