    Is there a way within a stack or within a pdl to retrieve the ip of who is connected to my port…..im configured as a server running mlp_tcp.pdl

      Use Multi_Server.  There are many ways to get the IP, via Meta Data, Global, etc.

      Robert,

      I think that the IP address you get is AFTER connection has occurred (and possibly even after a message has been delivered).

      If your intent is to control access – this is probably not the way to do it.

      If you just want to be able to indicate who you received a message from, etc. than this will work fine.

      email: jim.kosloskey@jim-kosloskey.com

      There is nothing that says the message must be processed after seeing who sent it

      Charlie,

      What is the global available?

      The global is client_list

      There is also a file created in the process directory:  .cli

      Jim…..thanks for your input….having received the message is a consideration…..

      I AM having problems getting a connection when mlp_tcp.pdl is used…..I can get one on native tcp but not with the pdl….. 😕

      Robert,

      What release of Cloverleaf(R)?

      Do you mean you are having an issue actually getting a connection or identifying who is connected?

      Getting a connection. “Works” with tcp (connection established/status shows # connections etc..)

      but not with PDL…..no indication that the engine even knows that I have specified multi-server ????  looking at eo etc…..
