I finally got round to trying to stream TransACT , as was discussed a
few months ago, but it's not going so well. Prime your clue bats.
I have an i3, and the Marconi modem, and my Linux box connects through
PPPoE (obviously). I even remembered to turn the i3 on.
I add routes:
$ sudo route add -net 126.96.36.199/4 dev ppp0
And I start vlc:
$ vlc udp:@188.8.131.52:8208
The client starts and I see nothing. So I use tethereal. When I start
vlc, I get a packet, and that's it:
$ sudo tethereal -i ppp0 net 184.108.40.206/4
Capturing on ppp0
0.000000 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -> 220.127.116.11 IGMP V3 Membership Report
Some tethereal output again with '-V':
Source: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
Destination: 18.104.22.168 (22.214.171.124)
Options: (4 bytes)
Router Alert: Every router examines packet
Internet Group Management Protocol
IGMP Version: 3
Type: Membership Report (0x22)
Header checksum: 0xea33 (correct)
Num Group Records: 1
Group Record : 126.96.36.199 Change To Exclude Mode
Record Type: Change To Exclude Mode (4)
Aux Data Len: 0
Num Src: 0
Multicast Address: 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206)
I get similar results using xine.
So it looks like it's trying to exclude the multicast channel I want, I
think, from the list of channels I *don't* want?? So it should start
streaming that data to me??
And that's where I fall apart. Nothing else happens.
