Hello - I wonder if someone can help:
We have some status info being sent by various machines using
multicast addressed udp packets. I have been attempting to use twisted
to write a python script that will passively monitor on the relevant
port for any udp packets with the specified multicast address, which I
can then parse the payloads of as required.
I have been looking at the examples here:
But I seem to have trouble getting them to receive anything at all.
I have managed to use tshark to display the packets :
tshark -i eth0 -x -l -f udp
so I know the data is there (coming isn on address 188.8.131.52, port 901)
