TTM Network Administration

Configuring the TTM Daemon in Guardian

Overview

By default, the TTM Daemon:

  • Sends and receives all network communication over the primary NIC
  • Listens on TCP port number 10200
  • Sends multicast over the address 239.255.3.10

If you want to configure a machine’s TTM Daemon to use settings other than the default ones, you can configure these values using the Daemon Setup dialog box in Guardian.

The following procedures assume that you configure a TT machine that communicates over a LAN. If you need to configure a machine for a remote connection, refer to Configuring the Remote Client.

Changing the Listening Port

By default, TTM listens on port 10200.

To change the listening port:

  1. On the machine that hosts the TTM Daemon you want to configure, open Guardian (in the system tray double-click the TT icon).
  2. From the Config menu, click Daemon Setup.

    The Daemon Setup dialog box appears.

  3. In the Local Daemon section (on the left side of the dialog box), edit the contents of the Port box to that of the appropriate port number.
  4. Click OK.

Changing the NIC Used for TTM Communications

By default, TTM communicates over the primary NIC.

To change the NIC used for TTM communications:

  1. On the machine that hosts the TTM Daemon you want to configure, open Guardian (in the system tray double-click the TT icon).
  2. From the Config menu, click Daemon Setup.

    The Daemon Setup dialog box appears.

  3. In the Local Daemon section, edit the contents of the PGM Interface box to that of the secondary IP address.
    Note

    When using TTM, if you incorrectly enter the address of a NIC, the TTM Daemon defaults to the primary NIC.

  4. Click OK.

Changing the Multicast Address

By default, TTM sends multicast over the address 239.255.3.10.

Warning

If you use a multicast address other than the default, you must change this address in Guardian on all machines that reside on the network segment that uses this address.

To change TTM’s multicast address:

  1. On the machine that hosts the TTM Daemon you want to configure, open Guardian (in the system tray double-click the TT icon).
  2. From the Config menu, click Daemon Setup.

    The Daemon Setup dialog box appears.

  3. In the Local Daemon section, edit the Multicast entry to that of the new multicast address.
  4. Click OK.

    All changes are written to the ttmd.cfg file.
