Multicast traffic is a scalable method for many-to-many communication on the Internet. A process subscribes to a multicast group address. Then, any packets sent by a subscribed process to the multicast group are received by every other process subscribed to the multicast address. The MulticastLoopback property controls whether any process on the local computer receives multicast packets sent by this client to the multicast group.
