This applies to MXWendler version 4.2 and above

Task:

  • Pooling MXWendler systems via time synchronisation


Tests to do before starting MXWendler:

  • Can you ping all the computers from one host?
  • Can you ping back?
  • Does your router/switch allow broadcasting?
  • Are the firewalls turned off?
  • Does the admin account have a password ( Windows 7)


Solution:

  • Turn on osc receiving for every machine on port 7000
  • Create a simple osc testing application with eg. pd and send some commands to *any machine* from *any machine*
  • Turn on Broadcast and receive time for every machine. all machines will send there time until they receive packet from a machine with lower ip, then they switch to receiving.
  • Broadcast to the subnet: 192.168.1.255 ( subnet may have different IP )
  • Broadcast to the ports where the machines are listening ( 7000 )
  • Important: sometimes Windows 7 does not allow broadcasting, then adress the other machine with its ip directly ( eg. 192.168.1.23 instead of 192.168.1.255 )
