Thank you very much . But I guess , I am not sure how to use that :) .....I downloaded the source code for windows named iperf-1.7.0-win32 and extracted the same. There is an exe which I when clicked on it opened an DOS prompt for some seconds and automatically closed itself.

Am I looking into the right file ?

Kindly assist me on the same

Thanking You

We used to use things like iTunes and various music & video sharing and similar in class.

The basic exercise was "get multicasting working, and you can listen to music (or watch videos)"

Good Luck

Once you open your DOS shell, you can start "Iperf --help" to see all the flags and parameters you can set.

Hope this helps,

How was your setup... I have tried sharing Mp3 files over multicast but was never successful

Run EIGRP if it works it works

or get     VLC and stream a file to a multicast address on a windows/linux machine, then play the multicast from another machine using vlc... ps. just before finishing the stream setup if you use gui add a time to live ttl=12 or something, cuz it's 1 by default.
