Hi, Jeff.

Thanks for your help.  Based on your suggestion that the
indirect cause might be an explicit unicast address in
EPICS_CAS_BEACON_ADDR_LIST, I added the following environment
settings to both IOCs and rebooted:

===
putenv "EPICS_CAS_AUTO_BEACON_ADDR_LIST=NO"
putenv "EPICS_CAS_BEACON_ADDR_LIST=192.168.0.127 192.168.0.255"
===

The CA beacon routing error messages on the consoles have now
gone away.

Thanks!

Lewis
