Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E1242: Gproxy load balancing failed

Product: Gproxy
Platform: UNIX/Linux
Status: Fixed for 6.6, fix available for 6.5
Last updated: 2011-08-31 11:10:29

This known error concerns only customers who received a UNIX/Linux Host
Links 6.5 update after April 2010 and before May 2011. The standard 6.5
delivery did not have this problem.

In April 2010 Gproxy was changed to listen for load-balancing UDP
broadcasts only on it's own IP address (rather than all). This avoids
problems with servers that have multiple network interfaces. The change
worked perfectly on Windows platforms. Subsequent testing showed that on
UNIX and Linux platforms an application that listens on a specific IP
address no longer sees UDP broadcasts, and the load-balancing function of
Gproxy stopped working.

The change is reversed and Gproxy now listens on all interfaces as before,
so that it receives broadcasts on UNIX/Linux platforms. Customers with
servers using multiple network interfaces and experiencing problems should
contact support.

We continue to look for a solution that will allow Gproxy on UNIX/Linux
platforms to listen only on it's own IP-address, but still receive
broadcast information.
