symptom

The NDPS Broker is binding to my server's first IP address

I am unable to control which IP address my NDPS Broker binds to

The SRS is using all the bandwidth on my WAN links

fix

The following is a synopsis of the command line switches available for the NDPS Broker:

/ALLOWDUP  This is used in clustering on the load line to keep the NDPS Broker from checking if a broker with the same name is loaded.  This switch is documented in the clustering information for NDPS.  This was implemented in NW5SP4 and later.

/IPADDRESS=X.X.X.X  If a server has multiple IP addresses bound to it (public and private), this switch allows the broker to bind to the specified IP address on the command line.  For further details on this switch, please refer to TID 10068393 titled "Broker SRS binding to server's Primary IP Address".

/NOADVERT  This is loaded to prevent an SRS from ever being loaded.  If the SRS were to be loaded manually after loading the Broker, it would prevent the SRS from communicating with other SRSes on the network.  This switch is useful for large networks with many Brokers in the environment.  For further details on this switch, please refer to TID 10069799 titled "What does the NOADVERT switch do when loading BROKER.NLM?".  Use this switch in conjuction with the /NOSRS switch on the NDPS Manager (LOAD NDPSM /NOSRS).

/NOIP  This is used to prevent the NDPS Broker from binding to the IP address on the server.  Do not use with the /NOIPX switch.

/NOIPX  This is used to prevent the NDPS Broker from binding to the IPX address on the server.  Do not use with the /NOIP switch.

/NOUI   This is used to load the NDPS Broker, but prevent the broker screen from being displayed.  This is rarely used.

/P=   This is used when SETPASS has been run on the Broker object and a password set on the broker.  You would put the password after the /P= to allow the NDPS Broker object the ability to login with a password.


NOTE:  If you have an NDPS Broker that gives you an error when specifying a switch, then you do not have a version of the Broker that supports that switch.  You will need to patch your server or upgrade your OS to get the latest BROKER modules.  For example, the /IPADDRESS= switch is not available for NetWare 5.0 servers.
