[LDM #BWL-598225]: Question on LDM server behavior



Jim,

Yes. For each REQUEST entry in the LDM configuration-file, a new, downstream
LDM process is created that initiates a TCP connection to (typically) port
388 at the upstream site.

> Are all future data feeds subscribed to delivered over that established 
> connection?

Yes. For each incoming TCP connection on port 388, the LDM server at the
upstream site creates a new, upstream LDM process that sends subscribed-to
data to the downstream LDM using the same TCP connection that the downstream
LDM initiated.

> Or are data feeds pushed from the upstream ldm server?

Not sure what you're asking. See the previous paragraph.

A downstream LDM must be able to create a TCP connection to port 388 at the
upstream site. You could run an LDM on your DMZ system and then have
LDM-s that are behind your corporate firewall request data from it.
Alternatively, if your corporate firewall allows internal systems to initiate
TCP connections to port 388 outside the firewall, then your LDM-s can all be
behind the firewall.
