The only difference is a difference in network distance: most current
users use udpcast on a LAN (traffic needs to cross no routers),
whereas you seem to plan a usage on a WAN. That is fine, the only
difference is that in such case some tweaking with the mcast-addr and
--mcast-all-addr settings might be needed to help the multicast
traffic traverse the routers.
Having spent a great deal of time of enery of my own, my coworkers, and
the nice folks at Cisco, I just wanted to post this to the archives that
the statement "--mcast-all-addr settings *might* be needed" should
really read "IS needed". Cisco routers, at the least, do not forward
packets destined for 220.127.116.11, which is the default for udpcast.
Changing this is required for clients to find one another.
That point aside, thanks for the useful software and for bearing me out
these 5 months ago.
