Hi Bruce,

as I'm just finding this logging in from home:
I'm probably way off but this reminds me of the ARP cache
problems we used to sometimes have years ago when switching
machines/IOC boards. You may be able to do something
with address lists, apart from that my memory is really
fuzzy about it. You may be able to find something searching
the tech-talk archives for 'ARP cache' - but it may have to
do with your dual interface and the gateway.

Hope this helps any at all,
Aloha,
Maren

I've been having trouble with one linux machine where my IOC's appear
to be running correctly, dbgf works from iocsh, but caget from another
window on the same machine fails to connect.     I suspect it has something
to do with how the multiple interfaces on this machine are configured, but
so far have been unable to find a solution.

Gateway is 134.79.35.1

I'm running with defaults for the EPICS_CA* and EPICS_CAS* env variables,
but have also played with EPICS_CA_ADDR_LIST, EPICS_CA_AUTO_ADDR_LIST,
and EPICS_CA_INTF_ADDR_LIST with no success.

See attached files for casr, epicsEnvShow, ifconfig, and netstat output
for more configuration details. We're running base 3.14.9 everywhere, but this
is the only machine showing this problem.

The casr output includes:
UDP Server:
UDP 0.0.0.0:0(): User="", V4.0, 0 Channels, Priority=0

This looks wrong to me, as my working IOC's show a valid UDP addr, but I'm
not sure how to fix this, or even if this is the root problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks,
- Bruce

P.S.  When I run caget, tcpdump shows:
# /usr/sbin/tcpdump -i eth0  -n -nn udp dst portrange 5064-5065
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
