[erlang-questions] Beginner: Windows UDP multicast receive

Thanks for the reply, but no real change - is anybody using UDP multicast
receive successfully on Windows ?

I presume that below the "Addr" is the Multicast-address ?

And LAddr is either my actual IP or ... ?

Do I not need the {multicast_loop,true} ?

Thanks!
Scott

I believe you are missing {active, false}.

On my gnu/linux box the following works
~    {ok, Socket} = gen_udp:open(Port, [binary, {active, false}, 
{reuseaddr, true}, {ip, Addr}, {add_membership, {Addr, LAddr}}]),

hope this helps
