- Defined in namespace Sockets
- Superclass: Sockets.DatagramSocket
- Category: Sockets-Streams
This class models a multicast socket that sends packets to a multicast
group. All members of the group listening on that address and port will
receive all the messages sent to the group.
In the TCP/IP world, these sockets are UDP-based and a multicast group
consists of a multicast address (a class D internet address, i.e. one
whose most significant bits are 1110), and a well known port number.
