Log4View 2010.2 and the UDP appender

After having published Log4View 2010.2, some users told me, that they had difficulties with the UDP appender.

As a matter of fact, the new field “Hostname”, which we added to the UDP receiver form, can only accept IP addresses (e.g. “127.0.0.2”). There is no DNS resolution for the host name in the UDP receiver.

Even worse, the host name is empty by default, which makes the UDP receiver fail. So please make sure, that you provide a valid IP address.

We will fix this in the next release.

    Still does not work under windows 7 32-Bit. I can enter anything I want, the UDP Receiver does no longer work.

    Log4net has a bug in the UDP appender so that you can’t send messages to the local IP address 127.0.0.1 in Windows 7.
    A workaround is to use the local address “127.0.0.2” in your log4net UdpAppender configuration. This should fix the problem.
