    HQ 2.3.0.Alpha broker discovery configuration - broadcast port not opened?

    Michael Justin Novice

      I added the broadcast-groups, discovery-groups and cluster-connections sections in the standalone non-clustered configuration

      of HornetQ 2.3.0 Alpha as documented on http://docs.jboss.org/hornetq/2.3.0.Alpha/docs/user-manual/html/clusters.html


      Do I understand correctly that this would allow discovery of the brokers in the local network (using IP multicast)?


      My problem is that the port 9876 specified in the broadcast-groups and discovery-groups is not opened when the broker runs.


      Is this feature limited to clustered brokers or is there something else which needs to be configured?


      Many thanks in advance!





      <broadcast-group name="bg-group1">









      <discovery-group name="dg-group1">








      <cluster-connection name="my-cluster">



      <discovery-group-ref discovery-group-name="dg-group1"/>
