This is the main interface into Vexus. The key responsibility for this module is to manage communication with the stand alone Vexus Node Editor. The Vexus Socket Listener is a global utility that runs in the background when 3ds Max loads. By default, Vexus will listen on port 7002 and execute commands that it receives from the Vexus Node Editor. The user can access the status panel for the Vexus Socket Listener by selecting Vexus from the list of options in the Utility Panel as shown below.
