Setting the Multicast Network Card IP Address

This optional configuration allows you to set the IP address for your active network card on your receiving/listening port.

IMPORTANT: The OS is responsible for automatically determining the receiving/listening port for your active network card.  Use this optional functionality only if you are noticing issues with receiving multicast traffic from Responder on a given Server machine.  This is otherwise (and in most cases) going to be unnecessary.
  1. Browse to and open any of the Responder service config files (such as Miner.Responder.WindowsServer.exe.config or Miner.Responder.DataServices.exe.config) located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Miner and Miner\Responder\Server\.
    You can edit the files by opening them in an XML application (such as XML Spy) or by opening them in a simple text editing program (such as Notepad).
  2. Insert the following code in the <appSettings> section, if not already added:
    <add key="MulticastLocalInterface" value="" />
  3. Set the value to the IP that matches the active network card.
  4. Save and close the config file. Restart services.
