Selection of a network connection for the SwyxClientDataStore (CDS) (kb3187)
The information in this article applies to:
- SwyxWare v6.01
- SwyxWare v6.00
SummarySwyxConfigDataStore (CDS) uses the first network connection for communicating with other Swyx components. This article describes how to define the network connection to be used, in case there are several active connections on a system.
The SwyxWare services and the Administration use TCP/IP to retrieve the current configuration data from SwyxConfigDataStore (CDS). The CDS usually binds to the first network connection on the system. Therefore, it is recommended to check if there are several network connections on the computer. In this case, you can use any of the following methods for selecting a connection for the CDS:
- Change the sequence of the network connections, or
- use the Registry to set a fixed IP address for the CDS.
Change the sequence of the network connections
You can change the sequence in the network connection settings in the Control Panel ("Control Panel" → "Network Connections" → Menu "Advanced" → "Advanced Settings").
Use the arrow key to move the required network connection to the first position under "Connections".
Defining an IP Address
If you want the CDS to use a network connection with a fixed IP address, you can define this address in the Registry. To do this, you have to create a string (REG_SZ) named IPAddress under the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Swyx\ConfigDataStore\CurrentVersion\Options. The value of the entry is the address in the form of Dotted Decimal Notation (e.g. "192.168.1.2").
