I am attempting to make use of this library towards the electrical sockets in c + +: Practical C++ Electrical sockets (http://cs.baylor.edu/~donahoo/practical/CSockets/practical/) I attempted an easy illustration of a multicast sender and receiver multicast

  • on Macosx I send and receive multicast monosodium glutamate.
  • I produced an online machine with Home windows XP and that i have the same example.

the content is distributed however the receiver doesn't receive anything. Inside your opinion, is a concern of virtual machine or library on home windows? (basically attempt to sniff packets around the virtual machine I begin to see the message sent)

multicast only creates exactly the same subnet so make certain your virtual machine has got the same subnet as the primary computer. For this reason Bonjour by apple is only for products on a single subnet since it uses multicast.
