Net-X-Code Cloud

Net-X-Code Setup

When running in a local network, Net-X-Code's server components use a multicast group to find and connect servers to the Net-X-Base API concentrator.  In some VMs and all cloud instances, multicast addresses/groups are not possible.  To connect the servers to Net-X-Base, a setting must be added to each Net-X-Cmd instance with the config variable "netxbaseip" set to the address of the Net-X-Base that command server should join.

Net-X-Cmd Config

The location of the config variables depends on the operating system:

Windows:

Registry

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Drastic\NetXCmd

Linux:

~/.config/Drastic/NetXCmd.conf

NOTE: If you are running the netxbase/netxcmd services, the config will exist in the root user

/root/.config/Drastic/NetXCmd.conf

macOS:

${HOME}/Library/Preferences/com.drastic.NetXCmd.plist

Net-X-Cmd Config Variable

netxbaseip - the address of the Net-X-Base this server should connect to.  Not generally used in LANs.

multicast - the multicast group address if using a LAN automatic joins system (not for cloud use).

commandip - the address of the network adapter to use for command processing between Net-X-Base and Net-X-Command.
