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 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 ?
