Hi!I am trying to search a tool for testing multicast. Currently, 'yum search multicast' yields nothing. I saw mcsender and mctest in google but they seem not to be supported... [by abednegoyulo]

I'm trying to understand how Multicast actually works, and have read numerous articles and Wiki pages, and have gathered this:
A multicast address takes up state on the router of the membership, which is a scalability concern
There are commands to view the Multicast state on a Windows machine
IPv6 requires Multicast as broadcast is no longer an option.
I'm trying to do some multicast big file copies over to remote clients on the other side of a satellite link. The idea is to minimize the amount of traffic going up to the satellite.
I tried using uftp without luck. The problem is that, even though we can reach clients via multicast from our central Hub, they aren't able to respond to a multicast address (it's not supported by the return link).
i am doing a project with multicast video streaming. The problem i am facing is, in 802.11b and 802.11g WiFi modes the multicast streaming band width is limited to 1Mbps. But the video have a bitrate of 2Mbps. after some search i found that the multicast streaming works on the lowest speed available. since the lowest speed for 802.11b and g is 1 Mbps,It is capped to 1 Mbps.
We are using multicast program to listen up multicast data from our provider, there are couple cases where the multicast having issue:
1. their server hang, hence no multicast data received from our end
2. their server having issue, multicast connection exists but no data inside
3. Sometime provider send duplicated message to us
On Ubuntu 12.04, due to a corporate firewall, UDP packets heading for the 224.0.x.x range get filtered out. However, as a developer, I have two applications that do discovery by listening to a multicast address, so I would like to persuade them to discover each other behind the firewall.
I am doing multicast in my android apps and I have some troubles like most of people ;-)
I have created an android application which listens for multicast.
It works fine on 2 phones and one tablet (Samsung S2 & S3 and Motorola). The problem is with an Asus tablet.
