I have this problem that has been bugging me for days. I "searched through the whole Internet" but couldn't seem to find any mention of my problem.
I have 2 machines connected via a Layer 2 Cisco Switch.
machine A will listen for 220.127.116.11 while machine B will send multicast on 18.104.22.168
On the first send, machine A will receive the datagram. On subsequent sends, machine A will not receive them until a "certain time" later.
An interesting to note is this problem will not happen for multicast addresses in the range x.0.0.x. That is, machine A will be able to receive multicast datagrams from22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, etc any number of times.
Any one has any idea what could be the problem causing this?
