Next: Easy CORBA objects connections
Previous: Going further
The DIET middleware uses CORBA as its communication layer. It is an easy
and flexible way for the different platform components to communicate.
However, deploying DIET on heterogeneous networks that are not
reachable from each other except through ssh connection is a complicated
task needing complex configuration. Moreover, to ensure that all
objects can contact each others, we need to set-up and launch ssh
tunnels between each of them, reducing significantly the DIET
scalability in that network configuration context.
The DIET forwarders are the solution for such a situation, by
reducing the number of ssh tunnels to the minimum and making their
launch totally transparent for the final users. The DIET forwarders
configuration is very simple even for very complex network topologies.
The next section presents the global operation of DIET
forwarders. Section 16.2 presents the DIETForwarder
executable, its command-line options and configuration file. Then,
section 16.3 gives two examples of forwarder
