Signiant Support

IPv6 Support in Manager+Agents Print


As of version 13.4, Signiant Manager supports IPv6 addressing by setting the default protocol family in your data distribution system configuration. Support for IPv6 requires a manual configuration and restarting your Manager services to apply the change.

Note: IPv6 addressing not recommended for production environments.

Your default protocol family can be:

  • PF_INET6 - IPv6 only
  • PF_INET - IPv4 only
  • PF_UNSPEC - Both IPv6 and IPv4 (Beta)

Enabling IPv6 Addressing

Windows

  1. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to your Signiant installation directory.
  2. Navigate to the \Mobilize\bin directory.
  3. Open dds.cfg in a text editor as an Administrator.
  4. Add a declaration for the default protocol family as PF_INET6:
    default protocol family is PF_INET6
    
  5. Save the changes and close your editor.
  6. Open the command prompt and use net to stop the relevant processes:
    C:\> net stop ddspcsrv
    C:\> net stop ddscasrv
    C:\> net stop ddsursrv
    
  7. Use net to start the processes and apply the changes:
    C:\> net start ddspcsrv
    C:\> net start ddscasrv
    C:\> net start ddsursrv
    

Note: Agents do not run the ddscasrv service, and do not need to restart that process.

Linux

  1. Using your terminal, navigate to your /etc folder.
  2. Use sudo to enable root permissions and open dds.conf a text editor.
    sudo nano dds.conf
    
  3. Add a declaration for the default protocol family as PF_INET6:
    default protocol family is PF_INET6
    
  4. Save the changes and close your editor.
  5. Navigate to your /usr/bin/ folder
  6. Restart your Signiant services using ./siginit restart, or by restarting the relevant processes:
    $ ./siginit restart sigagent
    $ ./siginit restart sigca
    $ ./siginit restart sigur
    

Note: Agents do not run the sigca service, and do not need to restart that process.
