View Full Version : Mentalray Satellite problems in OSX

04 April 2006, 02:32 PM

I've checked almost every threads in this forum about this subject and didn't resolve my problem. Hope that some bright mind can figure it out.


Maya installed in a Pentium with windows XP >
maya.rayhosts contains:

no firewall installed

Dual G5 with Mentalray Satellite >
Dual G5 with Mentalray Satellite >
Powerbook with Mentalray Satellite >

Installed in this 3 machines the Satellite and then made the suposed sequence commands to update xnetid
sudo ./netsetup_satellite
(ip of the Maya machine
restarted 2 times and then test the render on the pc...

The PC doesn't see the other machines during the render, but the network settings are ok.

Please someone can tell me what is wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Did you open port 7103 on the windows machine? Go to windows firewall and make sure the port is open.

What does the output window say when you try to render. Is it finding the rayhosts file? Does is give a message that it is trying to locate or add each of the hosts in the rayhosts file. Is your rayhosts file in the right locatiaon?

I've dealt with the same issue. There's this post - on page 3 of this thread -

Follow it to the letter and you should be fine.

Also, for me port 7103 was used up by OSX, so I had to use 7104 on all machines.
