    Default Multicasting

    Hi

    I have a code written for multicasting between client and server. On running this demo, The client receives only a few packets and some packets are dropped. Instead I want to ensure that all the packets are received using multicastsocket. Is it possible to implement TCP for connection establishment and then use multicastsocket. Do we have necessity of creating multiple threads for this..
    Pls HELP!!!!

    Default Re: Multicasting

    In General, Multicasting is the concept of communication between one sender and multiple receivers over a network. It is packet type in IPv6. In java, multicast is the feature of UDP protocol. Over a particular IP address and port, an user can send message to multiple receivers.
