Force multicast to start
Greetings all, using fog 1.2 is it possible to force a multicast session to start, say in the event that not all hosts in the multicast session were able to join, similar to the function whereby you can use a count down timer for hosts to join.
Thanks very much

Right now there isn’t.
It’s actually more a functionality thing I think in the udp-sender/udp-receiver command lines.
The issue lies in we give it a ttl and a wait period, but we also remove the need to confirm sending a return press. The reason is because the way the sender starts up is through a child process generated at the detection of the job.
Thanks Tom, apologies perhaps I was unclear. I am aware of the max wait timeout, but wanted to check if there was a way of starting a multicast session when one or more host failed to join without using the max wait timeout? I.e. something like a force start command…
Thanks very much,
I believe if you set the max wait timeout value it will wait for the specified time.
