Re: [xmlblaster] multiple nic environment

One of our xmlBlaster client writers, who is running in a multiple nic card environment asked:

"We discovered that xmlblaster clients (and maybe servers?) have to be binded
to the first network adapter. This can be difficult to find since windows
does not tell you which NIC card is eth0."

Is this true and is there something that can be done about this?

We are using socket protocol for client-server connection.

Thanks in advance for your help.


All our protocol drivers allow to force the lokal IP and PORT.

For SOCKET it is:

         You can specify our client side port as well (usually you shouldn't)
         Default is that the port is chosen by the operating system.
         Specify the hostname who we are. Makes sense for multi homed computers.
         Defaults to our hostname.
