Receiving Broadcasted Destinations

Before an OM Plus server can receive broadcasted destinations, the following file must be created.

$LPHOME/system/receiveHosts

The file should contain a list of the names of all the other OM Plus Servers that should have their destinations received by this server. When the remote service is started, it will poll all the servers in this file for their list of printers.

For Windows servers, the names need to be the same as the computers from Computer Name tab of each systems System Properties dialog. If the entire domain name is included on the name presented there, use only the first portion that is the system’s name.

For UNIX/Linux servers, the names need to match the result of a uname –n command executed from each system.
