Configuration Properties

All of the basic SLP properties, such as net.slp.isDA and net.slp.DAHeartBeat, are named in the following format.


SLP behavior is defined by the value of a property or a combination of properties in the slp.conf file. Properties are structured as key-value pairs in the SLP configuration file. As shown in the following example, a key-value pair consists of a property name and an associated setting.

<property name>=<value>

The key for each property is the property name. The value sets the numeric (distance or time), true/false state, or string value parameters for the property. Property values consist of one of the following data types:

If the value defined is not allowed, the default value for that property name is used. In addition, an error message is logged using syslog.
