window Xp and rama

Recommended Posts

Could you please give us a little more detail? I'm not quite sure if you are trying to get a slave up and running, or if it is an issue with Renderama itself you are having. I have Renderama running right now with 4 slaves on a quad core XP Pro machine running SP3 without any problems.

Here are some general pointers...

Run the Renderama slave. Your firewall may protest. Just tell it to allow the slave to work. You'll see the slave IP address along with its port number (defaults to 1616). Click on the File menu and change the port number to something else. Renderama likes 1616 for the local camera. My four slaves are ports 1617–1620. Write this number down exactly as it appears. You need it when you set up Renderama.

In Renderama, click on 'Add' and type in the address you wrote down. Be sure to use a colon, not a semicolon (been there, done that. It doesn't work...:blush:). You need the full address, not just the port number.

My slaves are located in a different directory than EIAS. Each slave has its own directory inside this folder. As I don't want the slaves running all the time, I created a desktop folder and placed shortcuts to each slave inside it. This gives me quick access to the slaves without having to go find them.

Make sure you copy over the required directories from your main EIAS location for each slave. I always copy Library, Resources, Shaders, Sockets, Preferences, and Temp.

I know these are somewhat general ideas. Hopefully, they will help. If not, give us more details to go on and we'll go from there.

Good luck!!!

Hi!

As what Ross mention above, more information is needed

What is the config incorrect message?

And how is your PC set up, is it network with more than 1 PC or 1 local PC with multi core processor?

Loon :D

You need install "Microsoft visual c++ 2008 sp1 redistributable package x86" library. This solve the problem for me.


Remember that you need install quicktime too.
