Hi all,
sorry for the lack of activity, have been knocked around by an opportunistic lung infection (i'm badly asthmatic cough hack cough) the past week. I'm in early to have a look at the script with the following aims.

1. generalise a bit to include windows and make it easier to include others (OS X, non RHEL-based *nixes)
2. generalise to include other network address changes such as those written in IP not DNS.

G'day all

Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to look at Salim's code and whether they could offer any feedback?

Also - if anyone could test on the various operating environments, it would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Subject: Re: [AG-TECH] New accessgrid.org Venue Server


The script for renaming urls and disabling venueclient's submit report bug is currently located at


I will move it later this week to the sourceforge AccessGrid location.  
  Sorry if the script is a bit rough I'm a novice at python but feel free to suggest improvements :)

The script was developed and tested on a Fedora box and a Scientific linux box as root, since root is the owner of the site-packages directory in python. I need to make a modification later today to allow the user to execute the python app to rename the urls in their  
~/.AccessGrid3/Config alone (probably takes about 5 minutes).    
Windows and Mac still needs to be tested.

At this time, disabling multicast by default for Windows 7 users is still outstanding.  If anyone knows how to do that feel free to email me.
