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).
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.
i used to setup a multicast server using windows server 2003 OS, i can see a lot of packets transimitted from the server once it was started. Does it make sense when no one is requiring the multicast stream? Isn't the network bandwidth wasted ?
