Darwin Streaming server ipnum change
i have successfully installed a QT streaming server by the wisdom of

But I have an issuee .
when I installed i gave the server the ipnum of 192.168.NNN.81
I have since needed to change this server to a diffrent ip number
all that is OK except for the QT server. The new machine num is
I can log in via : 192.168.NNN.90:1220 but - of course the server snapshot says the number is the number it was installed under (81)
this number is seen also on the upper right

and what used to work as rtsp://192.168.nnn.81 nolonger works at rtsp://192.168.nnn.81.

so is there a way that i can "tell" the server that it is this new number.

I have read that one can change a file
and there are 2 lines to bind to an ipNum

but i do not have a file named that there?

so - how can i correct thsi so that the server knows it is the new number?

What's the output of

locate streamingadminserver.conf

1st -- thanks for the reply

i tried your suggestion
in 2 lines

[root@Vgrid ~]# updatedb
[root@Vgrid ~]# locate streamingadminserver.conf
[root@Vgrid ~]#

funny I thought i tried a find from / ( root )
for streamingadminserver.conf

but did not find anything

so i suppose we now know where streamingadminserver.conf is
and that location is in 2 places --?


I opened /etc/dss/streamingadminserver.conf
and all it has inside is

so -- do i need to add something to --both?
or just the 1 in
and will that then change the RTSP IpNum?
and will it also change the IpNum I see on the admin page?

-----------------( and this might be nothing but...
so -- i have not changed this yet -- is that advised or a bad idea?

i find in /var/dss/config a xml file names streamingserver.xml

i was wondering about making the following cahnge to it
it was
<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr">0</PREF>
i might change it to
<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr" >192.168.nnn.NewNum</PREF>

<!-- This tells the server what IP address it should accept -->
<!-- client connections on. A value of 0 means all IP addresses currently -->
<!-- enabled for the machine. -->
<!-- <PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr">0</PREF> -->
<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr" >192.168.nnn.NewNum</PREF>

with NewNum being a real number

I am also wondering does the change to /etc/dss/streamingadminserver.conf
then change this xml file?

Thanks again!

I think I'd try to change the IP in the XML file in /var/dss/config.

it works
i edited the etc/dss/streamingserver.xml

changing the
<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr">0</PREF>
i might change it to
<PREF NAME="bind_ip_addr" >192.168.nnn.NewNum</PREF>

and it worked with 192.168.nnn.NewNum -- and the snapshot showed that num and all was good -- except
I could not stream past my FireWall ( cisco pix515e )
i had oked holes
tcp 554
tcp 7070
udp 6970 - 9999
tcp 8080
tcp 8000

i could ping the num 208.nnn.nnn.NewNum
I have the alias and nat all correct...
still -- no joy

then I enabled port 80 ( via the admin webpage )
and -- now it works

i intend to close the ports
tcp 8080
tcp 8000
i do not think those are doing anything...
so the fix
was the etc/dss/streamingserver.xml
and port 80
