Using eCAL in local mode can be benefitial

  • to avoid network congestion if the data is not needed on other machines

  • to make eCAL work in VPN and Firewall scenarios where non-local traffic is blocked

To switch eCAL to local mode, edit your ecal.ini and change the following settings:

  • Windows: C:\ProgramData\eCAL\ecal.ini

  • Ubuntu: /etc/ecal/ecal.ini

network_enabled           = false
multicast_ttl             = 0
