But there won't be any HELLO message coming from the sending side since the
sender is another application other than udp-sender. Does it mean that
sending side should provide HELLO messages with the same format as
udp-sender ?

As far as I know, by default, udp-receiver listens for its unicast address
as well. Is udp-receiver capable of listening every UDP packet coming to its
port numbered 9000 without expecting any HELLO message from the other side ?
