    The Discussion

      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
