This is an easy one. Windows Media Server running some sort of video stream and use Windows Media Player for the client. Whats fun is if you use a camcorder or webcam and stream live material... it gives you a better appreciation for multicast.

I do not have a windows media server at my disposal. Anything that is a free or cheap download?

Hi MIke,

I take it you are looking for something more than the igmp join-group command??

right what i am looking for is something to simulate multicast. IE some cliet server program. where i can start a multicast stream and then receive it elsewhere throughout my test multicast network. Wether it be steaming video or auido it doesnt much matter. Just so i can gain some exp with multicast configs.


I will try your tools tomorrow. They look like they may work. Thank you.
