I am adding a proxy as below, but it only lists C not CD

DANDERSO C DOUGA CCCHPC07.WIN.OSI.TO.,
192.104.51.7
SIMPSON CD TSIMPSON 172.25.30.19, 192.168.1.101
SIMPSON CD SIMPSON OSIJX1, OSIJX2
TNELSON CD TIMN CCCHPC07.WIN.OSI.TO.,

How do I add the D to the line for DANDERSO ?

Re: I am adding a proxy as below, but it only lists C not CD

Douglass,

What version of VMS?
What version of UCX/TCPIP?
What was the exact command you used?

Did you use /PERMANENT?

/PERMANENT only updates the permanent database.
The default (without /PERMANENT) will update
volatile and permanent databases.
Try the command again without /PERMANENT.

Hi,
it seems that you've created the proxy with the /permanent qualifier. This means that changes to the volatile database has not beeen made yet (after a reboot you will see the D too). Simpliest way to have it immediately: remove the proxy and add it again without using the /perm qualifier.
Cheers,
Eberhard

Re: I am adding a proxy as below, but it only lists C not CD

TCPIP services hold a proxy cache.
Those proxies in the cache are marked with the D.
The size of the proxy cache is defined by
SET CONFIG COMMUNICATION /PROXIES=n
If the cache is filled, new proxies are added to the database,
but not in the active cache.
You have to increase the value seen by SHOW COMMUNICATION,
then shutdown/restart TCPIP
(maybe a @TCPIP$PROXY_SHUTDOWN.COM followed by @TCPIP$PROXY_STARTUP is enough).

I guess you're talking about a TCP/IP Services proxy table. As "CD" means "Communication proxy loaded in the communication cache", I'd use an entry to get it loaded into the cache.

Re: I am adding a proxy as below, but it only lists C not CD

Hi Douglas
C indicates that defined proxy is loaded in communications and D indicates that proxy is loaded in cache. Is user DANDERSO defined in VMS box? If user isn't defined then when loading proxies appears a error message to this user and isn't loaded on cache.

Saludos.

Re: I am adding a proxy as below, but it only lists C not CD

There is a command
TCPIP> SET TCP/SIGNAL

which reloads the dynamic proxy cache. At one point it was undocumented - not sure why, since I am not aware of any other way to do this.

Re: I am adding a proxy as below, but it only lists C not CD

Yes,

we also use the command Benjamin gives.

It is even usefull much broader:

If you modify IP proxies in a cluster, only the LOCAL node updates the volatile database.
(visible by the abovementioned C instead of CD).
Issuing TCPIP SET TCP/SIGNAL on the other nodes updates their volatile db as well. (provided you set up your proxie config db clusterwide, of course!).
The gain becomes bigger when you have updated several proxies, and with more nodes, the command can also be given from SYSMAN.

A _VERY_ usefull command.

and in true unix style, that is probably why it is not documented, at least not in HELP and not in any manual or release notes I have seen. :-(


Proost.

Have one on me.
