Quick question, in 2.5.15 a feature was added called: Added auto-detection for starting network node & manager. Basically, when you submit a job via network render, the manager and the node auto launch at the same time. The issue I am having is I want to control who is running nodes and there seems to be some confusion when multiple managers are running on a network.

Is there a command line flag I can put in somewhere or some way I can even uninstall the node and manager from client machines (those submitting, but not participating in the rendering process).

Thanks.

There is no explicit function for doing this, but it is easily accomplished by redefining some plugin methods. Just go to your SketchUp plugins folder and create a file named maxwell.mod.rb. Open the file in Notepad and paste in the following Ruby code:

Code:
require 'maxwell'

module MX

  def MX.is_network_node_running?
    return true
  end

  def MX.is_network_manager_running?
    return true
  end

end

This file will be loaded after the main maxwell.rb file -- what it does is to fool the plugin into thinking that the node and manager are already running.
