I installed Render Daemon on my: SGI Indigo2 and o2, PC Linux, Sun Ultra 5 Solaris box.
heres the deal.
IRIX running broker, other OS’s running renderd. Only IRIX (other IRIX box)connects and renders.
Linux running Broker, other OS’s running renderd, only IRIX connects and renders.
Solaris running broker, other OS’s running renderd, only IRIX connects and renders.
The reason I trying to use renderdaemon, is my SGI is real good at modelling but slow at rendering. My PC sucks at modelling ( No montior or keyboard) and my Ultra also. But the PC is fast at rendering. I’m getting tired of the ol’fashion ftp sessions. If I don’t get render daemon running right then I will go to NFS set-up.
I notice renderd listens on port 5000, but broker connects on different ports each time (around the 3000s). Will this be an issue? can I set broker up to listen and connect on one port only? Am I better off compiling the source for render daemon?
Thanks in advance!!!
