Communication Problems between machines

< All Topics

If your machines don’t seem to be communicating with each other, or you received a message from Render Boss saying that they can’t communicate directly, you can try the following:

  • Make sure Render Boss is not being blocked by your firewall
  • Make sure all the machines are in the same network
  • Make sure all the machines have access to the Work Folder and the folders with your project and assets
  • Make sure all the machines have both Read and Write permissions for the Work Folder and your project and assets folders

If your Work Folder / Project / Assets are located in a MacOS machine:

It’s possible that the permissions are set in such a way, that when a new file is written, it doesn’t allow the other machines access. To solve that, you can go to the Terminal on the machine where the folder is hosted and type the following:

sudo chmod -R +a “everyone allow list,add_file,search,add_subdirectory,delete_child,readattr,writeattr,readextattr,writeextattr,readsecurity,file_inherit,directory_inherit” <FOLDER>

Replace <FOLDER> with the Work Folder location, then repeat for the Project and Assets folders.
