It helps to stick a toggle ([tgl]) on the connection status outlets of  
both of those objects.  (right outlet on [netreceive] and only outlet  
on [netsend]).  Then its easy to see the connection status.  Also, make  
sure you can ping the IP address before trying to connect to it.

[netclient] and [netserver] are more powerful.  I much prefer the  
[net*] objects to OSC because you don't have to do any translation, you  
can just send and receive Pd messages.   And I have found OSC to be  
much more of a hassle to get running than the [net*] objects, but to  
each his own, I suppose.

"Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a more  
direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in practice, it  
can change entire economies."
