    Where can we go to download the sample projects from this series?  I always find it helpful to have some actual code to refer to when learning something new. 


    Great series, by the way!

    Yeah, I always kind of fail on this in that I tend to make these things and throw them away or code them in an ugly way ( for speed ) in order to get a video published.


    I'll see if I can do something with some of these examples.

    Hi Mike,
    Have you tried multicasting on a computer with dual nics (each on a separate lan)?

    Great job Mike. It was very useful. I wish we could download the solution as well.  Angel
