Thread: Detect which Network Interface a message was received from!?!

    Unhappy Detect which Network Interface a message was received from!?!

    Hi Guys,

    I need your help!! I have a server application that receives broadcasts on differnt network cards by using the following command:

    servAddr.sin_addr.s_addr = htonl(INADDR_BROADCAST);

    However, once i receive a message, i need to know which NIC port it came from. Can you guys tell me what command I can use in order to retrieve this information?

    Thanks and Regards,

    I know this question is old least in Linux we bind to a specific NIC/port when listening and so when (say) eth0 gets a packet it is kinda obvious. No idea on Windows but this is how it is on Linux.

    Don't bump eight year old threads.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
