Multiple Arduino's communication to PC (VB.net) using Ethernet (UDP)

I want to receive data from multiple Arduino's (max. 4) in a VB.net application running on a PC. The distance between the Arduino's and the PC is about 100ft. Only once or twice a minute a numeric value must be send from a Arduino to the PC.

The best way to do this, in my opinion, is to do this through ethernet communication. I'm thinking about using UDP.

Question: is it wise to use UDP for this? If yes, does anyone has experience with some kind of "system" and is there sample code available?

Many thanks in advance.

I think so, especially if the devices are all on the same localnet. I don't have the VB.net code. I use Linux and C on the PC.

You might consider just using serial communication instead of ethernet communication.

I was considering RS-485 but I think I'm more flexible when using ethernet

I'm looking for some VB.net and Arduino sample code.

Is there anyone who has experience with some kind of "system"?

I'm looking for some...Arduino sample code.

The Ethernet library comes with sample code using UDP.

This is not the VB.net forum.

Have you had any luck with this? I am currently doing the same project.
