[Udpcast] Network card Error

Looks like the limit for the Virtual IP is around 100.

I think that if I change my networking around and put the UDPcast  
server on the first interface, then the number of Virtual IP's will  
not play a role.

It looks like the number of virutal IPS is more that the udpsender can  
handle.
I have removed all the virtual IP addresses from eth2 and now the  
sender will activate on eth3.

the network card has 192.168.9.254 associated to it,
it also has 9 virtual IP as well 192.168.0.254 thru 192.168.8.254.

I will try the strace option.

You can only use a network card if an address is associated to it. Is
this the case? If so, which address does it have?

Could you also try running udp-sender under strace and send me the  
output?
