Jens, thanks for your input.
We have several in house apps using DO over the LAN (in a 10.12 environment, in deployment since 10.5 or 10.4 if not earlier) and aside from security concerns for public use it has been great for implementing RPC. We’ve had these services running for many years and they have been very stable. As long as you know the demarcation between local and remote, things go smoothly.
I am looking to implement some new functionality and wanted to make sure there was nothing I was overlooking. I don’t think I’ll use DO as I’d like to not continue a dependency on outdated technology. I would prefer to not have to implement my own protocol at a low level.
Any higher level options you can suggest would be appreciated. The scenario is a launchd daemon running on multiple machines that can be controlled by a console app. Send commands from the console app to the daemons, read statuses from the daemons.
