Java Dynamic Management Kit 5.1 Tutorial

21.2.1 Multihome Interfaces

The multihome interfaces introduced in Java DMK 5.0 enable you to select the interfaces for the different network protocols used by legacy connector clients.

An HTTP(S) client enables you to select a local interface to receive notifications from a server. This user-specific local interface address is sent to a server and is then used by that server to push notifications. The interface address can be specified as either an IPv4 or an IPv6 address, or as a host name.

A legacy RMI connector client does not need to specify a local interface.
