Networking :: How To Find List Of Multicast Addresses And Ports In Use?
How can I find out list of multicast addresses and port in use?"netstat -ng" only gives list of multicast addresses that have been joined, it does not give port number.I have several hundred servers running application that listens to several multicast addresses on different ports. I want to write an audit script and get the list of multicast address and port numbers.

Networking :: Get A List Of IP Addresses Currently On The Network?
I am using DHCP on my home network. There could be as many as 5 computers logged in at any given time. Their IP addresses change depending on the sequence they log in.I want to be able to connect to them from any of them (some wired, some wireless) and share files by issuing a mount command for the appropriate shared drive.My question is how to get the IP of each computer when I only know the names of the computers. Pinging the computer name succeeds, but it does not give the IP.In other words I am looking for a Linux command that will come back with a list of IP's with their corresponding computer names so I can issue the right mount command. I would like to issue this command from a Linux terminal, but would also be happy to issue it from a Windows XP station.

Ubuntu :: List Of Com Ports ?
All i need is to see a list, window or anything that shows all of the serial (rs232) com ports that are on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine and what their associated port numbers are.
I have one com port that is on the motherboard (so obviously its com 1) and it works fine. but i also have a usb to serial (FTDI) com port that i cant figure out what the port number is...

Networking :: Converting IP Multicast To MAC LLC Broadcast
This is not a linux specific question more of a general network issue with the hope that someone may have already done this under linux.My problem:I have a red hat linux machine transmitting IP multicast packets onto an ethernet gigabit network (cisco switch).Wireshark (running on a different red hat linux box confirms packets on network.

Networking :: Cannot Receive UDP Multicast Packets From Windows
I've got an application that compiles in Windows and Linux and is using UDP multicast to communicate. I'm running it on a Windows machine, a Linux machine and a small board (Gumstix) that is running Linux as well. The Windows and Linux machines have no problems sending/receiving packets with each other. The Gumstix and Linux machines have no problems sending/receiving packets with each other. The Gumstix can also send/receive packets with two instances of the application both running on the Gumstix.
But when running on the Gumstix I can send udp multicast packets to Windows, but cannot receive them. (It works if I do point to point with a known IP port#, but not multicast.) I can run tcpdump on the Gumstix and see the packets, but they are not being received on my socket. Here's what tcpdump (running on the Gumstix) outputs when sending the same packet from different sources. Notice the IP header ID and flags (don't fragment) are different when coming from Windows.
WINDOWS to Gumstix
-7:-45:-2.015784 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 15, id 35331, offset 0, flags [none], proto: UDP (17), length: 444) 172.30.42.3.1165 > 22.214.171.124.47028: UDP, length 416
LINUX to GUMSTIX
-7:-43:-38.451991 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 15, id 0, offset 0, flags [DF], proto: UDP (17), length: 444) 172.30.42.13.32771 > 126.96.36.199.47028: UDP, length 416
GUMSTIX to GUMSTIX
-7:-33:-10.955608 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 15, id 0, offset 0, flags [DF], proto: UDP (17), length: 444) 172.30.42.110.1025 > 188.8.131.52.47028: UDP, length 416
I've tried everything I can think of to get this to work but am not getting anywhere. Also I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to Linux. Anything I could try to be able to receive udp multicast packets from Windows?

Networking :: Multicast UDP Packets Lost In Kernel
We have a high speed udp multicast connection. There are about 37 multicast groups and average incoming rate via the connection is about 20000 pkt/sec and peak 40000+ pkt/sec. Each packet is about 100-300 bytes. And there are 6 busiest multicast groups generating 80% of the traffic. No significant outgoing traffic via that interface. The problem is that, if our heavy-weight application create 37 sockets for all the groups, the packet loss become quite frequent. but if we create the 6 sockets for the busiest groups, the packet loss drops to 1/10 of the original level. We can confirm that the lost packets DO arrive in our box because a light-weight recorder on another box on the same ethernet segment can see the lost packets when listening to the same groups. If we start another heavy-weight application for the rest groups (31 groups ) on the same box, the packet loss just come back to the original level.
The packet loss happens not only to the heavy-weight application but also the light-weight recorder running on the same system. that is, the loss is system wide. The socket kernel buffer are all 4MB max and did not observe system buffer overflow. It seems the number of sockets listening to the same multicast group have the most negative impact on packet loss. And the higher traffic have a far less impact on packet loss than the number of sockets. It also seems that there is some limit in the kernel that when socket number are reduced under, the packet loss can significantly ease. How can I further diagnose the problem? Our system is RHEL 5.3 32bit i386, Xeon 2.9GHZ 16 Processors, 32GB memory. Two broadcom giga netowrk card and 6 Intel GIGA NIC, and only one interface card has so much traffic.

Networking :: Receiving Multicast Packets - Kernel 2.6.24
I'm working on a realtime-audio application, which should be capable to receive RTP packets via multicast addresses. App did work fine till I switched from 2.6.22 to kernel 2.6.24 (because of hwmon support for VIA EPIA LT15000AG)
With kernel 2.6.22 I had no problems, I'm using almost identical .config
Also tried kernel 2.6.24-rc5, same problem.
Tried it on two different boards (diff. NIC's, cpu's mem, etc ..)
I'm using the same setsockopt with IP_ADD_Membership as before for all interfaces. But now my app does not receive any multicast packet ! Strange thing is, as long as tcpdump is running, the app (and tcpdump) get the multicast packets, but if i stopp tcpdump, my application at the same moment gets no more multicast packets. I can see with netstat -g the joined MC-address (if app is active) multicast route is set up properly. I'm using VLAN (VLAN packets routed to eth0.3).

Networking :: Receiving Multicast On Multiple Interfaces?
I am trying to run some benchmark tests for multicast. What I want to do is have one system send multicast packets and another receive it on all it's interfaces (eth0-eth3). Whenever I run receiver on more than one interface I get echo effect (if I receive on x interfaces then I get same packet x number of times). Is this how it is supposed to behave? It does not make any difference whether I use loop-back or not. I have set SO_REUSEADDR to yes. I run separate instance of receiver on each interface. I am doing this on RHEL5 systems.
# uname -r

CentOS 5 Networking :: Can't Receive The Multicast Data
I'm trying to receive data that is being broadcast on address 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124. ports are 1201, 1202, 1203, 1204 respectively. I can see the data using wireshark but can not get my program to receive the data. all firewalls are shutdown. iptables is not running, i've set net.ipv4_icmp_ignore_broadcasts = 0 and still no luck.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Receive Multicast?
For the last couple of days, I've been unsuccesfully trying to receive multicast packets on Ubuntu Server 11.04, and seen some strange things along the way. The program i use to test this, is basically http://www.scribd.com/doc/38224328/mcreceive-c.Now the network has been configured to forward me the multicast packets, regardless of the joins. So tcpdump shows me:
15:16:11.308952 IP 10.164.130.2.61417 > 126.96.36.199.47806: UDP, length 1400

Networking :: Mapping Ethernet Multicast Address?
have a doubt about the multicast address.I have read that IP and ethernet multicast address have the same last 23 bits. While an ethernet multicast address always starts with 01:00:5E. Changing the last 23 bits of the IP address into hexadecimal form and "adding" them to the first 24 bits we find the ethernet address but what about the missing bit??? For istance I have: 188.8.131.52 = 11100110.00001011.01101111.00001010 So converting the last 23 bits I have b:6f:a The final ethernet address will be 01:00:5E:b:6f:a . And what about the missing bit?

Networking :: Lost Multicast Packets - Never Reach To Destination
I have a set of servers. Each of the servers has two IP addresses. The one IP connects it to the company LAN and the other creates a LAN between them for sharing database access and creating backups in order to minimize unnecessary traffic on the LAN. One of the servers is on one network and the other 4 are on another network. Something like this:
Gateway External Internal
Router --- 192.168.1.1 --- 192.168.1.2 (SERVER 1) 192.168.100.1 --+
+------ 192.168.2.1 -+- 192.168.2.2 (SERVER 2) 192.168.100.2 --+
+- 192.168.2.3 (SERVER 3) 192.168.100.3 --+
+- 192.168.2.4 (SERVER 4) 192.168.100.4 --+
+- 192.168.2.5 (SERVER 5) 192.168.100.5 --+
Access from both the External and Internal interfaces work without any issue. Each of the servers has a UDP Multicast client/server running. This periodically sends out packets informing the others of system health and that it is still running. These packets need to go out on the Internal interface. Currently the packets are going out on the External interface and not the Internal interface. The network on the External interface does not allow multicast and all packets are dropped never reaching the destination. Only one gateway (default) is configured for each server pointing to the gateway on the external interface. There is no gateway configured on the Internal side. I think I need to add a gateway on the internal side to get this to work but as it is not connected to another router I am not sure what this would be. I'm using Fedora 8 on all servers.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Receive Multicast Data
I have just set up an FC 13 box for a small network application. At the core, the application is supposed to receive some data over a multicast on my local network. However, for some reason, I am not being able to receive any multicast data on this machine. Other machines, on the same network (connected on the same layer 2 switch) are receiving the multicast just fine. I have tried the following things:
1. ensure that I am joining the multicast on the correct interface: the machine has only one ethernet card. Also, after starting my application, I use netstat -g to check for group membership. The multicast subscription shows up fine.
2. ensure there is no error in the program: the program works fine on my person linux machine
3. ensure that the multicast is actually available: it is available on all other local machines. I also wrote my own small broadcaster. data from this broadcaster (running on the same box) is available to other machines but not to my own listener program.
4. no firewall/filtering settings on the layer2 switch
5. TTL setting on the broadcast: have tried changing it from 1 through 5 with no effect. Note that even if the broadcast is coming from the same machine, my machine does not pick it up while other machines on the network do so.
I suspect this has to do with some settings on the network card itself. Below is the output of /sbin/ifconfig on the card:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:A1:67:BBA
inet addr:184.108.40.206 Bcast:220.127.116.11 Mask:255.255.255.0

Ubuntu Networking :: LTSP Server - Routing Multicast Communications?
I've just set up an LTSP server, with all its clients on a separate subnet to my main network - the main network is 192.168.1.x, and the LTSP clients are all 192.168.2.x. My LTSP server has 2 NICs, one on each network, and is merrily forwarding normal IP traffic from the clients to the rest of the network. I have a client/server application that has a server on one machine, and clients locate and attach to it using multicast protocols. The server is on the main network, and any other machines on the network can locate and talk to the server quite happily. The LTSP clients, however, cannot - I assume because the multicast communications aren't being forwarded by the LTSP server. How I can get this working?

General :: How To Find/mount Com Ports
When trying to run a program, from Gnome terminal, for a device connected to /dev/ttyS0 (COM1), I get a segmentation fault. I think the terminal may not want to leave the connection open for some reason. Do I first need to mount the device somehow?
