image_pdfimage_print

Daminion server may broadcast a lot of UDP packets in the network.

You can turn off the UDP broadcasts by editing the config file located by following path on the server PC: C:\Program Files (x86)\Daminion Software\Daminion Server\catalogs.config

Before making changes to the *.config file, please stop Daminion server, then open the *.config file and locate the lines shown below:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<ServerCatalogs defaultMediaStorePath=”” defaultThumbnailsStorePath=””
    checkdirsonstart=”true” disableautodect=”false“>

Edit accordingly: 

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<ServerCatalogs defaultMediaStorePath=”” defaultThumbnailsStorePath=””
    checkdirsonstart=”true” disableautodect=”true“>

Restart Daminion server.
