In the Fabasoft Folio Domain, it can be configured, whether the “cache and UDP multicast protocol” should be used or not. In addition the multicast address and the multicast port can be configured.
These settings can be made in the current domain object.
Performing a Fabasoft Folio update or a reinstallation, the “cache and UDP multicast protocol” is activated by default and the multicast address and the appropriate port are initialized with default values. These default values are dependent on the installed Fabasoft Folio Domain. The assigned multicast address stays between 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
Note: The address range between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 is assigned to low level protocols. Datagrams that are sent to addresses within this range are not routed by a multicast capable router.
These settings can be modified subsequently. Wait a short moment after a modification to ensure that the modifications are distributed to all Fabasoft Folio COO Services (synchronization threads run in periodical intervals).
After a restart of Fabasoft Folio COO Services the new settings are active. Starting the Fabasoft Folio COO Services the used settings are written to the event log (see chapter “Event Log”).
Note: If the “cache and UDP multicast protocol” does not work (error message in the event log), it is possible that another Fabasoft Folio Domain with the same license (same domain ID) exists in the network. In this case change the automatically calculated default values to prevent that several domains use the same multicast address and the same port.
Note: If you are using Linux and no default gateway is set, you have to set a route entry for the Multicast address-range.
