Udp Bc

Hi Everyone
Just a FYI to anyone that maybe using a large number of Netlinx controllers within a single company network. These units are sent to broadcast themselves every 5 seconds as a default. Now unless you have another network device that is hooked to the box(Modero panel, etc.) the unit doesn't really need to BC itself. My IT department brought this to my attention yesterday after they were doing some work on the system that they noticed alot of chatter from my boxes. 64 bits x 5secs x X#of boxes. Although very small they percieved it as a possible DoS. To fix this you can telnet the box and type in " set UDP BC rate" and enter "0" for none.
