Does udpcast currently allow using async and pointopoint options together ?
That is, I want to specify the unicast address of the participant manually
from the command line.
I noticed that the same question was raised in last January, 2009, and the
answer was "not -yet- supported":
There's no option to choose the forcedeth module
on the current cast-o-matic web site; is that
intentional? I did find it in the .deb package
containting the 2.6.30 pre-compiled kernel and modules.
I want to use udpcast in unicast (or pointopoint) mode.
However, I do not want udp-sender to determine whether to use unicast or
multicast based on the number of connections coming from the clients since I
want to test udp-sender along with another application on the receiving side
other than udp-receiver (In this framework, there won't be any connections
coming from the clients).
Based on above, I want udp-sender to use the unicast destination IP address
provided by the user from the command line or it may be even hard-coded into
the source code.
I tried to use -m option to specify a unicast address instead of a multicast
address to "trick" udpcast.
But, it did not like that. I guess that it got some kind of negative
feedback from the existing udp-receiver clients, and aborted the transfer
since the clients were expecting a "proper" multicast address after -m
Any ideas to overcome this issue ?
