SGI Flame 9.5.13.
When running the FAT tools in the latest API beta it is unable to see this machine. The old PPC only tools work fine. I have tested this at multiple sites.
milky-way:~ alatteri$ /Users/alatteri/Documents/Code/shrink.quicktime/wiretap/api/tools/Mac/OSX/wiretap_server_dump -v
Failed to acquire server list from interface 192.168.1.2 : Unknown host 'flame'
Error acquiring the number of nodes: Failed to acquire a server list from any interfaces
I will try this: but it is not a viable workaround as that would require either an internal DNS server or an entry in the client hosts file, neither of which is friendly or double click usable. yes, 2007 is fine.
The hostname fix is one workaround. Another is to use the new syntax as follows:
wiretap_ping -h 192.168.1.1:7549
This targets the port number and bypasses a new bit of code added to handle the case where multipl eservers are present on a single host.
Aside, I find it odd that you're nding up with IP addresses via multi-cast for 1.7 servers. 1.7 servers only know how to broadcast their hostnames. Are you specifying the IPs manually, or are you using what is provided by the server list?
This problem actually exists on all platforms. A fix should be available in the final release due out shortly.
