The code snippet of this section uses an hard-coded group adress.
But can this group adress be taken arbitrary ? Or must I compute it with an external tool ?
can you explain what you actually mean?
Can I take the group address that I want ? (eg. 188.8.131.52)
As I want to build a serverless P2P application.
(Apologizes, I have a very little level and experience in networking : maybe i am too ambitious for my low level and little skill).
you can use any address that is a valid multicast address, google will tell you what the reange is (not 184.108.40.206 btw)
After having searched over Google, it seems that i can use
- into 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168
- or into 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199
I hope that I have made no mistake. (source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicast_address#AD-HOC_block)
