Streaming from a server with two NIC cards


I have Wowza Streaming Engine installed on a machine running Windows Server 2008 r2 with two NIC cards. I configured the stream targets on the input application to send a stream to a multicast address. I have a stream coming in on the 1st interface. I want to to be able to send to the stream target destination on the second interface.

The input stream comes in on the first interface but the stream is being sent to the target destination on this same first interface it uses to receive the stream.

Is it possible for the stream to be sent out from the 2nd interface.




Yes you can set a specific NIC for multicast address. Look at your conf/VHost.xml and search for DatagramConfiguration. You should see some commented out properties for specifying interface addresses for incoming and outgoing. Also see this article for an example.
