Issue Details

I am trying to use the UDP network functions in LabVIEW and I keep getting error 113. What does this error mean and how can I fix it?


This error could be caused by one of two things:
  1. A data set is being written to a network buffer that is smaller than the size of the data.
  2. Data is read into a buffer that is too small to hold the full size of received data.
Be sure that the data you are reading or writing is not larger than the buffer allocated to hold the data.

Additional Information

There could also be internal network buffer size limitations that cause this error. Operating Systems often define their own maximum buffer sizes for standard network communications and these could also be limiting your data transfers.
