I am student of Computer Science and this semester I am doing a
project for my degree based on UDPCast.
I am also a teaching assistant I have been using UDPCast in all our
lab room where we have our courses.
What we do now is install an image on a computer in a room, an then
copy the harddrive/partition over multicast.
The thing is that we want a server that would hold many images with
What my project has to to is allow the unicast copy of a computer
image to this server, and then, when needed, using a client that would
activate UDPCast on the server as a sender and using normal UDPCast as
receiver on the rest of the computers.
This is the basic idea, and should be rather simple, but I would
really appreciate the help anyone can give.
My questions until now:
1) Is the source for the Custom udpcast boot media configurator available?
2) Can i set up the server to multicast from a file?
0) Thanks for the snapshot of the Command Line Windows. This is the
environment that I have been working with. Yours does look different.
1) However, instead of just typing "udp-sender" as MS-DOS mode
command to start the process as you did, the proper syntax on the Sender
side should be "udp-sender -f kenya.doc", where "kenya.doc" is the file
that you are attempting to send, based on what I can decipher from the
latter part of your snapshot.
2) I do not understand why the text string "udp-sender -f kenya.doc"
shows up between the "Broadcasting ..." and the "New connection .."
messages. Did you input this articular string at certain point of the
process? For sure, "kenya.doc" sounds like a custom file name controlled
by you. Neither MS-DOS nor udp-sender.exe could have dreamed up with
this on their own.
3) According to the operation conventions that I have been observing,
the 192.168.100.72 is the IP address of the intended receiving PC,
correct? What did you see on the screen of the receiving PC?
4) The "read: Not enough space" message is somewhat deceiving,
because it also shows up when no filename is specified.
5) By the way, the udp-sender for my experiments is running on a
WinXP PC with the same [Version 5.1.2600] MS-DOS mode.
6) Another thing. It seems that I can not receive your reply eMails.
So far, I only see other colleague's Mails commenting on your eMails to
me. This "relay" type of phenomenon is a bit strange. So, if I am not
responding to your eMail in the future (My discipline is within 24
hours.), it may be caused by this phenomenon. (If you do "Reply All" to
my eMail, I should get two copies of your messages, one direct and one
through udpcast reflector. It is fine with me.)

First I would like to thank all the developers who has developed this
wonderful software for multicasting files.
I am in great need of this software and has downloaded windows version.
Can someone send me the detailed procedure for sending and receiving a
particular file using Windows utility?
i tried but as soon as i press enter in window of sender or receiver the
window gets closed.
Please find attached a patch to allow udpcast to compile on FreeBSD 8.
Note that the resulting code is not yet tested.

When using the bnx2 network module, the system complains that it can't get
the firmware (specifically bnx2/bnx2-mips-09-5.0.0.j3.fw).
I've have a copy of the firmware, but can't find a way to get it to the
right place in the web-o-matic initrd.
Any advice in overcoming this would be much appreciated.
