I want a gateway to publish PVs from 192.168.134.51:8064 which
is on a private network connected to 220.127.116.11 (where a softIoc is already
running) because I can’t access this private
I have the situation where I have a solaris-8 server (18.104.22.168)
with two network cards. One goes to our observatory network and the other
goes to a private network running a windows based softIoc (192.168.134.51). Now
I need access to the PVs of the widows softIoc from other IPs on the
I can successfully get the gateway to publish the windows
softIoc PVs without any problems. However, I have a solaris softIoc
running on the same server as the gateway and this is where I’m having
problems. I’ve tried using different EPICS_CA_SERVER_PORTS for both IOCs
but no matter what I try I can’t get the gateway to see the solaris IOC
on the same IP. If I manually set my EPICS_CA_SERVER_PORT at the command
line then issue a caget, it successfully returns the PV value but it reports
that there’s multiple instances of the PV.
My question is: can a gateway co-exist with a softIoc in the
same ip address?
If so, what do I need to do to make it happen? Using
different EPICS_CA_SERVER_PORTs doesn’t seem to be it. Is this
related to the fact that I can’t run multiple softIocs on the same server
unless I change port numbers? In which case I’d want a gateway to
interface to them as well.
Here’s my startup command run on the solaris server (22.214.171.124):
-debug 1 -pvlist k1lmct.pvlist -access GATEWAY.access -home $HOME -log
k1lmct.log -sip "126.96.36.199" -sport 5064 -cip
"188.8.131.52:8164 192.168.134.51:8064" -prefix k1:lmct:gateway&
Here’s the start of the debug output log:
PV Gateway Version 184.108.40.206 [Feb 20 2008 16:27:23]
EPICS 3.14.9 PID=13539
Thank you in advance!
