Re: [Linux-cluster] TTL on multicast packets set to 1 by default?



My apologies I must have missed that email.

The code in openais is untested in a routed environment because I dont
have any routed environments to test with.  This is why TTL is not
configurable in the current openais or tested with any values greater
then 1.  I can build you an RPM with ttl set to some greater value to
test with if you like.
