Help with multicast receive

I've build an application that sends UDP packets to a multicast address
224.1.2.3 but in my other application I can't receive that packets
using the code below. It blocks on receive. Any suggestions? (I can see
the packets arriving at 224.1.2.3:554 on the client machine since I'm
running the server and the client on the same machine)

UdpClient uc=new UdpClient(8899) ;
uc.JoinMulticas tGroup(IPAddres s.Parse("224.1. 2.3"));
IPEndPoint ep=new IPEndPoint(IPAd dress.Any,0);
byte[] packet=uc.Recei ve(ref ep); -----> Blocks!!!
uc.Close();

Hi everyone, I am trying to write a small app that sends multicast udp packets using a socket object. I have more than one NIC on my PC and the following code works OK only if I disable all the NICs but the one i want to use. Of course i tried to use Socket.Bind method, but even if i use it to bind to the correct NIC (I also verify using LocalEndPoint and IT IS the correct one), the packet is sent on the wrong NIC! (I have a software...

Hi, I have eleven C# applications running on eleven different computers sending packets to a MSMQ MultiCast configured queue (same address for all). Those eleven senders also act as receivers. Do all receivers receive the sent packets in the same order? Thanks Eric

I'm streaming quicktime H264 movies to 224.1.2.3:554. Why, in my MulticastReceiver class of another application, have I have to bind my socket locally on the same remote port (554) in order to receive the multicast packets (with the primitive receive)? Why can't I bind to another port and still receive the packets? Below is the source code I'm using to initialize the receiver. --------------------------------- public...

Hi guys, I have a daemon running on Debian and listening for multicast packets sent to 224.0.0.251:5353 (ZeroConf Multicast DNS queries). The server is plugged into a VLAN trunk with eth0 and joins several VLANs using virtual interfaces (i.e. eth0.xxx). It should be able to capture the UDP packets on any interfaces, so it spawns a thread for each interface specified in a config file, and for each thread it creates a socket: ...

My application will use a multicast channel for contacting peers on the network running the application, like mDNS. I have some sample code that works great on my local machine, but have a question how they will react on a multi router network. This code is currently 2 apps but will eventually be one multi thread app. This is the send code... public static void Main() { UdpClient sock = new UdpClient(); ...

I was working on a multicast client and ran into a possible problem. Here is the code... udpClient = new UdpClient(4000); udpClient.JoinMulticastGroup(IPAddress.Parse("224.1.1.1")); udpClient.BeginReceive(new AsyncCallback(DoUDPReceive), this); My concern is that it seems to make exclusive use of port 4000 so I worry that in a Citrix environment, it would fail with an AddressAlreadyInUse exception like it does if you run two...
