6.11.11. Connector IP Address Configuration

When the Connector starts up, it binds to all local IP addresses on the selected port using the wilcard syntax, for example: 0.0.0.0:3306.

You can force the Connector to bind to a specific IP address by setting the tpm option property=server.listen.address={IP_ADDRESS}

If you wished to bind to the localhost IP address only, perhaps for security reasons, here is an example:

shell> tpm query staging
tungsten@db1:/opt/continuent/software/tungsten-clustering-6.0.5-41

shell> echo The staging USER is `tpm query staging| cut -d: -f1 | cut -d@ -f1`
The staging USER is tungsten

shell> echo The staging HOST is `tpm query staging| cut -d: -f1 | cut -d@ -f2`
The staging HOST is db1

shell> echo The staging DIRECTORY is `tpm query staging| cut -d: -f2`
The staging DIRECTORY is /opt/continuent/software/tungsten-clustering-6.0.5-41

shell> ssh {STAGING_USER}@{STAGING_HOST}
shell> cd {STAGING_DIRECTORY}
shell> ./tools/tpm configure alpha \
    --property=server.listen.address=127.0.0.1

Run the tpm command to update the software with the Staging-based configuration:

shell> ./tools/tpm update

For information about making updates when using a Staging-method deployment, please see Section 9.3.7, “Configuration Changes from a Staging Directory”.

shell> vi /etc/tungsten/tungsten.ini
[alpha]
...
property=server.listen.address=127.0.0.1

Run the tpm command to update the software with the INI-based configuration:

shell> tpm query staging
tungsten@db1:/opt/continuent/software/tungsten-clustering-6.0.5-41

shell> echo The staging DIRECTORY is `tpm query staging| cut -d: -f2`
The staging DIRECTORY is /opt/continuent/software/tungsten-clustering-6.0.5-41

shell> cd {STAGING_DIRECTORY}

shell> ./tools/tpm update

For information about making updates when using an INI file, please see Section 9.4.4, “Configuration Changes with an INI file”.

Warning

Updating these values require a connector restart (via tpm update) for the changes to be recognized.
