The following network setup will enable you to run the distributed devices and systems listed in the FBNavigator and Design Patterns collections.
1. Configure the Network Router
The network router should be configured to assign each hardware
platform hosting a distributed system or device a fixed IP
address in the range
2. Configure Local Host Addresses
Each platform should be configured to associate its host name with the fixed IP address assigned in Step 1.
- This is done automatically by the Windows™ 10 operating system.
On Linux™-based operating systems, the host name is found in
the /etc/host file, and the name/address associations are contained
3. Configure Firewalls
Each platform that has a firewall should be configured to allow
incoming and outgoing TCP messaging on ports
for remote device management, and incoming and outgoing UDP multicast
messaging on ports
