local c = require("component")
local m
if c.isAvailable("modem") then
    m = c.getPrimary("modem")


local c = require("component")
local m = c.modem


local m = require("component").modem


local m = require("component").getPrimary("modem")

The reason that your code isn't working is that require is a function avaliable in open-os

on an eeprom you have to interface directly with the components.


function getComponent(name)
	component.proxy(component.list(name, true)())

local m = getComponent("modem")

component.list lists all components with the given name's addresses and type (calling the return value returns the first index's address)

component.proxy gives you a "proxy" of the component using an address

with out a proxy you would have to use component.invoke to call a method on a component


realised that you needed help with the server not the drone sorry, ignore this post.
