Multicast Options

    I am looking for a way to make the default multicast group use 239.10.10.10 instead of the default of 224.0.0.1. How would I go about changing that? I have the exact same issue with On-Demand Multicasting as here: https://forum.clonedeploy.org/507-help-with-on-demand-multicast
    I am not getting any type of prompt to start the multicast session on any of the clients, even though they are connecting and showing up in the console, they wont start, so I am assuming a network issue, and our old Ghost Solution was on 239.10.10.10
    Edit, when I select and define client clount in the multicast to 3 for example, each client now DOES give me the "press enter to start" until it reaches the 3 threshold, and then it starts, but it wont work when leaving the client count blank......
    Also, Is there a list of multicast arguments available?

    you can use this argument to change the address.
    --mcast-rdv-address 239.10.10.10

    you need it on both sender and receiver args
    full list of args is here

  3. When I select and define client count in the multicast to 3 for example, each client now DOES give me the "press enter to start" until it reaches the 3 threshold, and then it starts, The 3 clients start out very fast, then eventually crawl to a complete standstill (58.1%) and sit there for hours. Any ideas on things to try. Unicast works on the same machines at 10+ Gig/minute.

    I still cannot get it to work when leaving the client count blank (none of them say "press a key to start")

    Have you tried pressing a key anyway?

    Have you tried changing the multicast block size?
    --blocksize 700
