Unable to ping PC workers from Mac machines
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:26:21 PM »
Hello,

When submitting a job through Appfinder from Mac to PC, the PC machines are green and marked "running" but no frames are rendered and the machines don't show up in the job's Frames/Work panel in the GUI.  Also, when trying to ping these PC workers from Mac machines im getting the "unable to contact worker" pop up.  When I ping from a PC, it works.  Appfinder used to work, but once these issues arose, we can no longer submit to PCs and Mac.  Would appreciate any help on this issue, thanks!

Did something in your network (VLAN, etc) configuration change recently?  Can you do a (non-qube) ping <hostname> from the cmdline of a Mac -> PC?

Hmm, it's possible, how would do a non-qube ping from the Mac for a PC?  Thanks!

I actually figured out how to ping from a Mac to a PC (non-qube) and it can see the PCs.  We may have changed the network configuration, is there a recommended network setup for using PCs and Macs together?
