    How can I multicast from perl to flex?

    zone12webmaster

      I've seen the multicast solution adobe have announced, but it seems i'll need a flash/coldfusion backend to make it work. I've looked all over the place for information on multicasting with flex and it seems a no go without using this new system.

       

      What I have at the moment is a simple server that recieves a message from the client, does a database command and then loops through all the clients sending the original message and the database result (unless the command was a select from database).

       

      This is good, but it is unicasting. Perl has multicasting, and it works well, but I don't know how to get flex to recieve the multicast messages and there doesn't seem to be any information on the internet about it.

       

      Any help will be much appreciated.
