RE: Problem with DGRAM multicasting
Yes, there are versions of the Ethernet driver that has this problem. I will
send you the latest driver.

Thanks for your fast reply.
The original source where I detected the problem contained the code to disable the loop-back, but with the same result. The code I inserted in the mail was the bare minimum to simulate the problem. It worked correctly on a i386 linux PC but failed on the Axis 100LX. I tried the reduced code with the line you gave me included again (to be sure) but with the same result.
It's a strange fenomenon. Running the process on the Axis through telnet with console output enabled it gives each 116 sento's an EWOULDBLOCK error and than continues. Through telnet with output to /dev/null, it stops totaly after 116 sendto's until touching a key in the telnet session.
I suppose it's a problem in the Etrax ethernet driver.
Thanks again for your suggestion.
