Like other UNIX tools, instead of building every possible feature into every possible application, it’s easily combined with other tools to accomplish whatever goal.  Tar is meant for exactly what you want.  I often do things like this on windows and unix hosts alike:


# Sending end

tar –cf - /path/to/sourcefolder | udp-sender


# receiving end

udp-receiver | tar –C /path/to/destfolder –xf –


If you want compression, make it –zcf and –zxf.


You can get a Windows tar.exe in unxutils, busybox-win32, or Cygwin.  Cygwin will have the most complete and compatible tar.

I am working on Multicast Download using Windows Version of UDPcast application. I want couple of information on UDPCast tool.

1. Can we transfer multiple files using single command line from sender?

Thanks for the help in advance.
