Hi and thanks for your respons.

Since the plugin sends already a huge amount of data through the LAN this solution is only intended for a small LAN at home. Of course one should have the possibility to enter a specific address later on. By now I have not found out how to create a dialog to prompt for an address with DevCpp. With Delphi this wouldn't be a problem :-)
Do you have sample code that shows what needs to be done to send a multicast? Do I only set the socket opt for broadcast and enter a multicast address? What steps do the clients have to perform?
If I base on the ml_ex plugin the license would be clear. The other files do not have this header :-/ Perhaps I should ask Justin Frankel. Has anybody his email? If yes, plz send it via pm through this forum.
I know that I am a little bit paranoid
, but I really want to be sure that everything is legal before publishing any code.
Kind regards and thanks so far,
