accessing devices running on a server with 2 interfaces

When you don't specify an address before the port number, omniORB will listen on all network interfaces (see this documentation: section 6.6) but will publish the first non-loopback network interface it can find in the IOR.

Hi folks,
several use case exists to install a server on several subnetworks.

I think the good way to do this would be to put an environment variable bind-address in /etc/tangorc, exactly the same way it is done in other services, e.g. MariaDB (
bind-address should allow several addresses.

It seems to me backward compatibility could be easily assured by keeping current behaviour by default (publishing on first IP address found).
Thus, if bind-address is defined in /etc/tangorc (or elsewhere) TANGO service will publish on this or these addresses.

Does this sound OK and feasible to you?

I don't know whether you can use -ORBendPointPublish options several times so you could publish as well the private network IP address in the IOR and then be able to run 'atkpanel sys/database/2' from your private network too.

Hi Reynald,
we tested it today and noticed that only the last -ORBendPointPublish is taken into account so it is not possible to publish several IP address.

according to omniORB documentation (, section 6.6.3), it seems possible to publish several endpoints.
Please have a look at this documentation and try to find the correct combination that would fit your use case.
