Unable to Send a Broadcast


Message text:Unable to send an auto-discovery broadcast because a local port from which this broadcast packet is supposed to be sent is currently in use by another program
May appear in:Auto-discovery access mode


In the auto-discovery access mode the DS Manager is finding all locally connected Device Servers by sending an Echo (X) command as UDP broadcast. All Devices that receive this broadcast reply to it and the DS Manager is building a list of available Devices basing on received replies.

This message means that the DS Manager is unable to send the broadcast because local port from which the broadcast is supposed to be sent is currently opened by some other program.

This situation is extremely rare. If you encounter it please contact Tibbo for instructions on how to change the port from which the DS Manager is sending the broadcasts! By default, the port number used for the purpose is 65534.
