I'm not sure I understand your question: Are you trying to set up multicasting on a network? IP addresses are IP addresses, regardless if they are unicast or multicast.
In my experience, the cameras and workstations have unicast IP addresses. In the video stream/profile settings, you assign a multicast IP address. Then, when the VMS/NVR connects, it pulls the multicast stream.
I have never had to configure a multicast address in the NVR/VMS. It always connects via the unicast IP address, but then streams via multicast.
I hope that makes sense....
I am talking of multicasting from the VMS to the clients.
@Aaron: Do you mean to say I will have to assign only unicast IP addresses to the network adaptors of the recording server and the client workstations? I dont think so.
Correct me if I am wrong.
