Twisted Matrix and multicast broadcast

I'm trying to get a simple multicast application working using
Twisted; so far I have:

from twisted.interne t.protocol import DatagramProtoco l
from twisted.interne t import reactor
from twisted.applica tion.internet import MulticastServer

class MulticastServer UDP(DatagramPro tocol):
def startProtocol(s elf):
print 'Started Listening'
# Join a specific multicast group, which is the IP we will
respond to
self.transport. joinGroup('224. 0.0.1')

def datagramReceive d(self, datagram, address):
# The uniqueID check is to ensure we only service requests
# ourselves
if datagram == 'UniqueID':
print "Server Received: " + repr(datagram)
self.transport. write("data", address)

# Listen for multicast on
reactor.listenM ulticast(8005, MulticastServer UDP())

from twisted.interne t.protocol import DatagramProtoco l
from twisted.interne t import reactor
from twisted.applica tion.internet import MulticastServer

class MulticastClient UDP(DatagramPro tocol):
def startProtocol(s elf):
print 'Started Listening'
# Join a specific multicast group, which is the IP we will
respond to
self.transport. joinGroup('224. 0.0.1')

self.transport. write('UniqueID ',('', 8005))

def datagramReceive d(self, datagram, address):
print "Received:" + repr(datagram)

# Send multicast on, on our dynamically allocated port
reactor.listenM ulticast(0, MulticastClient UDP())

*************** *************** *************** *************** *************** *********

No surprises there! But how do I get the server to send to all clients
using multicast? transport.write requires an address. Any suggestions

Hi, When I run 2 or more clients on the same machine, the first client application is receiving multicast messages but not the subsequent clients. I'm using the same, multicast address and port for all the clients as this is the default multicast ip, all the clients automatically register to this ip and port number.

Hi Everyone, I am trying to right a server that can receive a message and send it to all clients using UDP on twisted.

Hi. I'm adding IPV6 support to my app, and I have a UDP Broadcast socket that I need to redo using IPV6. I know that IPV6 doesn't have a notion of broadcast anymore, its all multicast (broadcast translates to a multicast address of ff02::1 essentially). However, the following code throws an exception on the SetSocketOption() call: Socket...
