Receive Multicast?

Hi, I'm using the MulticastDatagramConnection to receive multicast udp packets. However, its simply not receiving. I have verified that the packets are being sent, and a test java application receives them just fine.


Does anyone know why the MulticastDatagramConnection would fail to receive multicast packets?


Here's how I'm using it:


byte[] buffer = new byte[4096];

MulticastDatagramConnection con = (MulticastDatagramConnection)Connector.open("datagram://:20002;interface=wifi");

Datagram datagram = con.newDatagram(buffer, buffer.length);



con.receive(datagram);   // This line blocks the Thread, and it never receives anything Smiley Sad

Re: Receive Multicast?

I haven't played with this so I might just be **bleep** in the wind but try testing with a small receive buffer...say 8 bytes instead of 4K.
