We are trying to get the Ghsot console to create images from our model PC, however, everytime we start we have to stop it because it floods the switches and other users can't do anything as their outlook stop working, etc.

Has anyone seen this before?

The last time I reduce the rate from 500 (default) to 100 mbits/sec but it still did the same.

Thanks for suggestions

You must use the Unicast method as the MultiCast method will always flood a switch.

Thanks,

From readin the manual, it seemed that multicast was the better option.

I will try unicast and post my results.

If your network is segregated properly Multicast can be faster, but Unicast prevents it from broadcasting the image to all ports of the switch.

If you're creating images it doesn't make sense to use multicast anyway, because there are only two machines involved.

Multicast is used when deploying, when the same image is being sent to multiple machines.

[8D]Hi,

I also have this problem - even with unicasting. Our networking section say it still floods the network because it used udp and not tcp/ip. Can anyone give me any more info on this or know of a way round it. It is preventing us from imaging over the network. If I throttle the network speed in Ghostcast server it is manageable but can take up to 20hrs to put the image on (instead of 4 mins)
