When to Configure for Nonrouted, Multiple Network Interfaces

If one of the following conditions exist, you might need to configure multihomed machines.

When multicast routing is disabled between interfaces, it is usually because multicast has not been deployed in the network. In that situation, broadcast is normally used for service discovery that is not DA-based and for DA discovery on the individual subnets. Broadcast is configured by setting the net.slp.isBroadcastOnly property to True.
