How does the Processing Server resolve the IP address in a clustered deployment? - c06238732

When the Processing Server receives a request from a Status Server, it does a DNS lookup to retrieve the IP address. The PrintAnywhere component gets this IP address by calling gethostbyname . A host can have multiple IP address and the gethostbyname command will return a list of those address. PrintAnywhere will utilize the first value returned. The sequence of the IP address list may be configured on the DNS server. That action is outside the scope of PrinterOn Support.
