I’m trying to send messages between a few computers and would like to use name_open to find the connection IDs but names do not appear to propagate across nodes with different endianess.
I have 2 little endian nodes (x86, armle-v7) and one big endian node (ppcbe) all running QNX 6.5.0. They all have qnet and gns running with the x86 node acting as the gns server. Although the nodes can see each other on the network ( i.e. ‘ls /net’ from any node shows all 3 ) in /dev/name/global/net they can only ever see the like-endian nodes.
Is this a limitation of gns? Is there a way around this? Have I done something wrong
