[Udpcast] Multiple file transfer

Like other UNIX tools, instead of building every possible feature into every
possible application, it's easily combined with other tools to accomplish
whatever goal.  Tar is meant for exactly what you want.  I often do things
like this on windows and unix hosts alike:


# Sending end

tar -cf - /path/to/sourcefolder | udp-sender


# receiving end

udp-receiver | tar -C /path/to/destfolder -xf -


If you want compression, make it -zcf and -zxf.


You can get a Windows tar.exe in unxutils, busybox-win32, or Cygwin.  Cygwin
will have the most complete and compatible tar.

I am working on Multicast Download using Windows Version of UDPcast
application. I want couple of information on UDPCast tool.

1. Can we transfer multiple files using single command line from sender?
2. Is it possible to identify the Name of the file being transferred at the
reciever end?


Thanks for the help in advance.


Thanks and Regards,
