You didn't do the necessary joinGroup() call, which is in the original

I made many trials, and one was like this:

from twisted.internet.protocol import DatagramProtocol
from twisted.internet import reactor
from twisted.application.internet import MulticastServer

class MulticastClientUDP(DatagramProtocol):

def startProtocol(self):

def datagramReceived(self, datagram, address):
print "Received:" + repr(datagram)

# Trying to receive from, on our dynamically allocated port
reactor.listenUDP(60044, MulticastClientUDP())
But datagramReceived is never called. Am I doing something wrong?
Is there any other method that should be called so I start listening on that group?

I've also tried to use listenMulticast instead of listenUDP but then I realized this is if I need more than one application to listen/write to the multicast port and I don't need that.
