Connecting to a Real Time Target

I wish to create an app that will connect to an SLRT target armed only with run-time knowledge of the target's IP, port, etc. This app will be compiled and will be running on a machine other than my normal host. Thus, the typical
tg = slrt('name');
construct won't work.
The old C-API included calls such as xpcOpenPort( ip, port ), but I can't find anything like that within the Matlab environment.
Thanks

In R2020b you can use any SSH client to connect to the target computer, install, load, start and stop a real-time application.
For more advanced instrumentation, MATLAB and Simulink Real-Time are required in the host computer (MATLAB Coder and Simulink Coder are no longer required if you don't need to modify/build the real-time application).
You can use the MATLAB API to build instrumentation with MATLAB App Designer:
If you need to work with external tools and languages, you can use MATLAB External Language Interfaces:

Hi Jim, I would look at this example, specifically at the code behind the "Connect to Target" button:
I hope this helps.
