Unicast bridge enable bug for windows

There is a current bug for Windows users in which prevents them to enable a Unicast Bridge that is currently listed as "disabled" via the Venue Client. Normally you would (this works for Mac and Linux) open up Tools -> Preferences -> Bridging, select a bridge, right click on the “disable” text and select enable. This doesn't work on either Windows XP or Windows 7.

Bug has been logged via bugzilla (Bug 1975).

The following provides a work around, which is to edit the following text file manually:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\AccessGrid3\Caches

Windows 7: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\AccessGrid3\Caches

and manually edit the bridges file (using wordpad is fine).

Simply locate the desired bridges, based upon "name" and change the status to "Enabled". Save the file and these bridges should then be listed. An example is listed below:

 

[82664eb260b41608a24968d14787fc3a]

status = Enabled

name = APAG

portMax = 52000

serverType = QuickBridge

rank = 0.0320000648499

host = vv3.ap-accessgrid.org

portMin = 50000

userRank = 3.0

port = 20000

Hope this helps.
