I want to use osc because:
- I think it is possible (I hope my script doesn't need to much tweaking to exactly do what I want)
- Midi via RTP is not an option on this set-up because the laptop is on linux, and the rack is on windows7 with a copperlan running on it for other duties. Copperlan is not available on linux.

Yes, it is sending a last marker message by default.

It is actually performing a jump to the marker sent by oscii bot:
oscsend(LiveFX_Reaper, "i/marker", 1); // send goto marker 1

I'm probably not clear , sorry I'm not a native english:
the script is working, but at this state, each time my "reaper tracks" laptop send a last marker string, my reaper fx machine jump at the marker 1.
What I need is a way for oscii bot to select only markers with a predefined number (or better, name) sent by reapertracks, and to send to livefx reaper a "i,marker",x (x=1 for verse, 2 for chorus 3 for bridge, you get the idea).

It is working like that, because oscii bot is on the rack Live fx machine. Reapertracks laptop is configured (in reaper/surface control) to send osc to the rack machine IP on port 9000 (the osc template is "standard" stripped down to send only markers info).
Fx live reaper is listening on port 8000. So oscii bot is receiving on port 9000 (reaper tracks) and sending on port 8000 (Fx reaper)
