-The socket transfers binary data, so we need to pack the data before sending them and unpack them at the reception. For Lua we use the [[http://​webserver2.tecgraf.puc-rio.br/​~lhf/​ftp/​lua/​|lpack ​libary]. You can either download the code and recompile **the pack.so** shared library or get it  [[https://​www.ensta-bretagne.fr/​zerr/​filerepo/​vrep/​pack.so|already compiled here]] if you work on x86_64 linux computer. The file **pack.so** should be added in the main V-REP directory.+The socket transfers binary data, so we need to pack the data before sending them and unpack them at the reception.

 The socket is between processes on the same computer so the IP address is **localhost** or **127.0.0.1**. The communication port is set to **33211**. The port number is arbitrary, if this port is already used, we will get an error message. To get a list of used port, you can use **lsof**. Here we print only the ports used by V-REP: ​ The socket is between processes on the same computer so the IP address is **localhost** or **127.0.0.1**. The communication port is set to **33211**.
