We are using a printer that is connected via WAN. It has a unique IP address and communicates via UDP-packets. We don't know details, just have the protocol of the network traffic.
We would like to have a windows software that provides the following functions:
- it checks the status of the printer once every 30 seconds and changes his program icon (in the windows taskbar at the bottom) depending on the status of the printer
- when the user clicks on the program icon in the taskbar, it requests a special status from the machine and copies the response of the machine (plain text, around 36k in size) to the clipboard so the user can paste it
Please find protocols of the network attached.
Any questions welcome.
