You don't need to use multicast service if your network already supports multicasting on 224.10.11.12
Please note 224.10.11.12 is not an external server. It is multicast ip address that is only valid in your local lan.

interesting, I thought it was an external address.
But he that doeth the server? By doing so, you have a broadcast network and a possible overload?

But with ALL PC version 3.1 works correctly with multicast into my windows 2003
With ALL PC version 3.2 do not see users.

Please read about UDP Multicasting to know how multicast works in a network. There doesn't need to be any server. Packet sent on this address is received by all machines running squiggle.

If you still want to use multicast service then can you make sure sure all the necessary ports are not blocked in firewalls of the machines? And the multicast service is added as an exception in firewall of the machine where it is installed. Check the config file to see which ports you have to unblock.

There is no way to use a computer as a server for squiggle?

so as to use UNICAST instead of MULTICAST?

Multicast service would be the server you want. You can install it and make sure it is not blocked by firewall as I mentioned earlier.

Please download and try the latest revision of 3.2 to see if it works.
