The host manager allows the administrator to review and configure the list of stream hosting servers managed by the Centova Cast web interface.
The host manager may be accessed using the
Hosts link under the Management heading
in the navigation menu.
The Hosting Servers List
The hosting servers list displays all of the hosting servers that are currently being managed by the Centova Cast web interface. The list is organized into columns with the following headings:
The name of the hosting server; usually the server's hostname or a descriptive title.
The IP address of the hosting server.
Indicates whether or not the server can act as a master hosting server.
Indicates whether or not the server can act as a relay hosting server.
Click on the
Edit Server icon next to a server to launch the hosting server editor
to edit the server connection parameters.
Click on the
Delete Server icon next to a server to remove it from management by the
Centova Cast web interface.
Adding Hosting Servers
New hosting servers may be added to the web interface using the
Add hosting server
link near the top of the page. (Note that you should not normally need to do this
manually, however; this is typically done automatically by the installer when setting
up the hosting server.)
The hosting server editor interface displayed when adding new hosting servers is identical to the hosting server editor interface described in the Editing Hosting Servers section below.
Editing Hosting Servers
The hosting server editor interface provides access to the settings for each hosting server. The settings available include:
Specifies a descriptive name used to identify the hosting server; usually the server's hostname, and possibly including information about where the server is hosted.
Specifies the IP address on which the control daemon on the remote server is listening.
Specifies the hostname (if any) that corresponds to the server's IP address. This will be used when applicable for self-referencing links that point directly to this server.
Specifies the port on which the control daemon on the remote server is listening. This should virtually always be set to
Specifies the authentication key configured for the control daemon on the remote server. This should always match the contents of
/usr/local/centovacast/etc/rpcshadowon the remote server.
Specifies the roles for which this server may be used: master and/or relay. At the present time this functionality is not used, but will be used for clustering support in future versions of Centova Cast.
Default stream IP address
Specifies the default IP address to be assigned to streams created on this server.
