cheers for that martin, I got it working , but I think I'm going to have to
use OSC as Im currently doing a project on music jamming over a network, I
tried changing netsend to sendOSC and netrecieve to dumpOSC but it doesnt
allow me to connect
you wouldnt know the problem no?
cheers for the help anyway

On a single machine you can use "localhost" or "" for the address.
The port number can be any number up to 65535 that isn't being used for
something else, which in practice usulally means a number above 1024 (http
uses 80, ftp uses 21, etc...). Examples often use 9999. You could also use
netsend and netreceive (see attachments) if you don't need the OSC namespace
stuff. That way you can send anything at all. If nothing happens, remember
you have to send a connect message first to the send object.
