Technote (troubleshooting)


Customer want to control their unused network feature, so want to confirm if informix server need network multicast feature support or not during running.


question about ids informix network communication design.




all version and platform.

Resolving the problem

Informix server should not need multicast, and all of the IDS network communications are designed as point to

point so there is no way to use multicast (at least not without a feature request and I'm not certain what the benefit would be for IDS).
