Projects / Emcast


Emcast is a multicast toolkit for distributed/peer-to- peer applications that require multicast communication. It includes the program "emcast", a generic multicast utility (like netcat), and the library "libemcast", a generic multicast library. Emcast supports IPv4 multicast (IM) and can easily support almost any end-host multicast (EM) protocol. The EM protocols supported are Banana Tree Protocol (BTP) and Internet Relay Chat (IRC).
