Hello,

When multiple multicast becomes operational or when using the deployment in unicast, since it has more than 4 network interfaces (1 WAN + 3 LAN+) which are on the same network, it would be interesting when it sends exemple3 by unicast or multicast sessions, sharing the bandwidth between 3 network cards (one per NIC):

For example (3 simultaneous sessions, 4 network interfaces):
WAN = eth0
first multicast or unicast session: eth1
second session multicast or unicast (it checks if a session is already listening on eth1 (ip) and passes to the next interface if a session listening on eth1 and if a second existing interface (the interface is set in the same network )...): eth2
third session multicast or unicast (ditto): eth3
etc. ...

You can also add a function to manually select what interface we want drbl / clonezilla listening for a separate session
