TIdIPMCastBase Class

Implements the common properties and method for Multicast clients and servers.

TIdIPMCastBase = class(TIdComponent);

TIdIPMCastBase is a TIdComponent descendant that implements the the common functionality for both client and server components that support IP multicasting, as described in the Internet Standards documents: 

RFC 1112 - Host Extensions for IP Multicasting  

RFC 1458 - Requirements for Multicast Protocols  

TIdIPMCastBase implements properties and abstract methods that allow access to and control of the MulticastGroup address, Port, Active state, and Binding for the component. 

Applications do not create instances of TIdIPMCastBase. Use TIdIPMCastClient or TIdIPMCastServer to provide Multicast datagram support.
