I was looking for a tool to send a stream of data with FEC where the
client/receiver can connect even if the stream has yet begun. I haven't
found anything but Udpcast that can do anything similar. I think that
maybe an "streaming" option can be added so the sender sends Hello
packets at the end of a block of slices+FEC so a receiver can hook to
the UDP stream.
What do you think about this? Can this be made modifying Udpcast without
broken it all? Is there another software that I can use?

I recently wanted to download the current udpcast-kernel .config but
the link on the Homepage returns 404 for me:
Additionally, I wanted to test some stuff with a USB-Memory-Stick but
I could not manage to mount the filesystem (fat32) on the stick. I did
not even see messages in dmesg regarding the stick being connected. I
tried to test with a nonmodified udpcast-cd-image.
I fear that this problem is not related to udpcast-framework but
rather related to missing kernel or other framework features. However,
after googling I am still none the wiser. I hope that someone can show
me the right direction on where to investigate, so I can have full
Thanks & Regards
This was working and now it has stopped.
Have a UDPcast server running on a HP DL360G5 with 4 NICS. One
connected to an internal infrastructure (eth2) and another connected
to a dedicated switch with the client systems on the same switch (eth3).
When i run the UDPcast send or receive, using the following command:
udp-sender -f /home/base.udpc --interface eth3 --point-to-point --full-
duplex --max-bitrate 600m --nokbd --portbase=9922 --min-receivers 1 --
rexmit-hello-interval 5000 --max-wait 300
I get the following error message:
No suitable network interface found
The following interfaces are available:
Interestingly, an ifconfig show eth3 as a valid network adapter, but
the udp-sender does not see the device. This was working last week,
and nothing has changed on the server
I have tried everything, restarting DHCP, removing the interface and
adding again. Rebooted the server, restarted the network stack
manually. nothing seems to help.
Using SUSE linux 10 as the base server OS.
I'd like to use udp-sender with async and a unicast address instead of
multicast so that unicast at the MAC layer is actually used.
Ive tried using the pointopoint switch, but I get the message "pointopoint
mode set, and 0 participants instead of 1".
Is there a way to do this with udpcast?
