Hmm, I forgot about the other 5 channels in my last post :/
So that will be 6*4 bytes per millisecond, still not a problem I think ;)

The computer recieving the data also sends start/stop signals to my 
Should I use a different port for these signals, or just use the one port 
for both way communication (won't it interfere eg. give higher latencies?)
Should the sockettype be stream?
