Windows DHCP MADCAP Server Multicast Addresses RRS feed
I am very familiarized with DHCP server role on Windows OS, but I have a doubt regarding multicast scope.
From what I understand, a multicast scope will assign MADCAP clients with a multicast address defined in the scope range. That way, applications that use multicast addresses will be able to communicate with several hosts at the same time with one address only.
My question is, why would I set up a multicast scope, if one address should be enough for several clients, let’s say 10 computers. That way the app will use that same multicast address to communicate with all hosts.
How does MADCAP clients get the address? How do I setup the DHCP Server to provide ONE multicast address to clients in ONE scope? How can I check from the client side what multicast address they belong to?
Thanks in advance!
