I'am using udpcast to transfert disk Images from a server to several

client number increases (more than one) I get an error saying: Rogue packet
received <eth0 IP address>:9001 expecting <eth0:x IP address>:9001 The
command line used on the server is :
udp-sender --file <filename> --interface eth0:x
On the client:
udp-receiver --file <filename>
It seems that only the eth0 interface can be used bay udpcast. It works
perfectly with this one. How can I get udpcast to work with my virtual
Until today, udpcast used a "wildcard bind" for its sending socket,
and this confused the kernel in situations where there were network
aliases. Now (version 20050206) it binds to a concrete address
instead, and so this problem should be solved.
Sorry for my bad English!
Thank you for your help.
