Multicast Programming Sample

The following sample code illustrates how to include multicast functionality to a Windows Sockets application using socket options.


#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN

#include <winsock2.h>
#include <Ws2tcpip.h>
#include <mswsock.h>

#define u_int32 UINT32  // Unix uses u_int32

// Need to link with Ws2_32.lib
#pragma comment (lib, "Ws2_32.lib")


int                  /* OUT: whatever setsockopt() returns */
join_source_group(int sd, u_int32 grpaddr, 
   u_int32 srcaddr, u_int32 iaddr)
{
   struct ip_mreq_source imr; 
   
   imr.imr_multiaddr.s_addr  = grpaddr;
   imr.imr_sourceaddr.s_addr = srcaddr;
   imr.imr_interface.s_addr  = iaddr;
   return setsockopt(sd, IPPROTO_IP, IP_ADD_SOURCE_MEMBERSHIP, (char *) &imr, sizeof(imr));  
}

int
leave_source_group(int sd, u_int32 grpaddr, 
   u_int32 srcaddr, u_int32 iaddr)
{
   struct ip_mreq_source imr;

   imr.imr_multiaddr.s_addr  = grpaddr;
   imr.imr_sourceaddr.s_addr = srcaddr;
   imr.imr_interface.s_addr  = iaddr;
   return setsockopt(sd, IPPROTO_IP, IP_DROP_SOURCE_MEMBERSHIP, (char *) &imr, sizeof(imr));
}
