pynetconsole 1.3.1

A pure python implementation of a NetConsole listener


NetConsole is an insecure protocol used in the FIRST Robotics Competition to view the output of Robot programs.

On the cRIO platform, netconsole provides a console interface to vxWorks, with input and output support.

On the roboRIO platform, this provides access to output only when your program is ran using netconsole-host (which is done automatically for you by the C++/Java/python deployment tools).

This implementation has been tested on Python 2 and 3, and should work on Windows, Linux, and OSX.


You can easily install this package via pip:

pip install pynetconsole


On Windows, you can run netconsole like so:

py -m netconsole

On OSX/Linux, you can run netconsole like so:



Please file any bugs you may find on our github issues tracker.


This implementation of the netconsole listener was originally written by Robert Blair Mason Jr.

It has since been maintained and enhanced by the RobotPy project.
