–SOLVED (workaround) see post 3–
using SCNvim and Mac Catalina (and VSTPlugin in case that is contributing)…
in the past when I’ve gotten these I’ve had to search and rm a file called “sc-pipe” that SCNvim creates - but now in Catalina - no dice.
pkill scsynth Server.killAll not working either
there’s some interesting discussion here on force resetting UDP ports which might help
update: able to launch scsynth from terminal if I specify for example -u 6666
q: does anyone know the default port? -Update found it 57110
maybe I can get SCNvim to choose a different port
SOLVED! can change the port with s.addr=(NetAddr(“127.0.0.1”,6666)) then s.reboot
One safety tip here: If you have a server up and running, and you want to switch to a different port, the sequence you wrote would leave you with two server processes, not one.
// let's say I have a server on port 57110
s.addr = NetAddr("127.0.0.1", 6666); // btw fixed the quote marks for you
// now the Server object points to 6666
// but the old server process is still listening on 57110
reboot will try to quit the server process – but it’s forgotten about port 57110. It will send
/quit to port 6666 – so the old process won’t get the message and it won’t shut down.
Then it will boot a new process on 6666.
It’s probably ok in your case because the first boot attempt failed – but a better habit when changing a Server object’s NetAddr is to
s.quit first, then change the address and boot.
