How to set up multicast using dynamic mode

sbuchan
I have 2 Ubuntu servers each running a PETALS esb (platform distribution). I have services deployed on both and both esbs can see and use each others services as long as I am in static mode. I would like to use the dynamic mode but I do not know how to get multicast working on both Ubuntu servers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

What is the target of this questions?
Q : Do you want to set up the multicast on your linux network?
A : Be sure that your network router authorize this multicast trafic

Q : Do you want to configure your PEtALS nodes to use multicast?
A : There is a topology configuration sample in the PEtALS platform distribution (conf folder). Rename the file as topology.xml on each node and start PEtALS Wink

Yes, I need to set up multicasting on both linux servers. All the documentation that I am seeing on setting multicasting up on a linux server involves recompiling the kernel. I will not be able to do this on a production server. Is there another alternative solution to set this up so I can add new esbs to the domain dynamically instead of having to create a new topology.xml file for each esb when a new one is added?

Yes, I want to configure the PETALS nodes to use multicast but I don't know how to configure linux to allow multicasting.

Thank you for the help.

Scott

Not really sure about this. When a host wants to send multicast packets, it sends it on a multicast IP, I really do not think that you need to recompile the kernel to do such a thing. You just need to oconfigure the networks routers to allow multicast packets.

The only thing you need to set in the topology file is to set up the multicast parameters. Since the topology is dynamic, you do not have to declare your petals nodes here.
