Multipoint and Multicast Semantics
In considering how to support multipoint and multicast in Windows Sockets 2 a
number of existing and proposed multipoint/multicast schemes (including
IP-multicast, ATM point-to-multipoint connection, ST-II, T.120, H.320 (MCU), etc.)
were examined. While common in some aspects, each is widely different in others.
To enable a coherent discussion of the various schemes, it is valuable to first
create a taxonomy that characterizes the essential attributes of each. For
simplicity, the term "multipoint" will hereafter be used to represent both
multipoint and multicast.
