We would also like to connect the Stagecoach directly to the PC. If we run a DHCP server on the PC, again can we assume that this will work and each Gumstix will get a unique IP address? Will the Gumstix COMs be able to send packets to the multicast address?
Yes, we'd like to use multicasting. The router we will be connecting the Stagecoach to will hopefully assign IP addresses to each Gumstix using DHCP. Is it safe to assume this will work?
