    hello everybody,
    how do I choose a multicast address?
    I know that in order to join a group, i just insert the address, but
    how will the server, or the other clients knows what is the IP address?

    thank you

    You either have to fix it in advance or use an address allocation
    service such as the Multicast Address Dynamic Client Allocation Protocol
    (MADCAP - see RFC 2730).
