Beacon/Enabled Registry Key NAME Beacon/Enabled DEFAULT enabled DESCRIPTION The BEACON protocol service is used to identify JNIORs on the network, configure IP addressing, and provide management functions. The protocol allows us to communicate with a JNIOR on the local network segment even when its IP configuration is faulty or set for a foreign network. Changes to Registry settings in this section require a reboot in order to become effective. For added security this protocol may be disabled using this Registry key. The BEACON protocol is required for proper operation of the Support Tool. JANOS also uses this protocol to identify peers on its local network.
