in the cvs at pure-data's repository at sourceforge.
if you prefer binaries, have a look at pd-extended.
the objects are called [udpsend], [udpreceive], [packOSC] and [unpackOSC].

the reason is, that it is often quite hard to explain something in an
abstract way (esp. if one does not know what the other already knows).
if i had written "<port>" instead of "7000", you might have asked me why
the object [udpreceive <port>] (literal!) did not create at all and how
to configure your firewall to pass through "<port>" (you do have an
application-layer firewall, don't you?)
if you had known that i meant a number with "<port>", youmight have
started with any number, e.g. 123 or 100234, both of which might have
caused you problems which i had no intention to go through.
so it was an attempt to reduce my amount of typing (which has provento
fail completely, considering what i have to type now).
as a matter of fact you can use any port. just have a look at the
help-files (once you have the objects)
