Multicast TTL

I am using IceStorm subscribers with multicast endpoints (yes I'm totally aware of identity issues and unsubscribe).

I notice (via wireshark) that regardless of how the TTL set for the subscriber endpoint the messages that are published to the multicast group are always using a TTL = 1.

How can I override the TTL an IceStorm topic uses when publishing messages?

    Hi,

    This is currently not supported, the "--ttl" endpoint option is a local option and is therefore not transferred over the wire. If you have a commercial need for this, please contact us at [email protected].

    Cheers,
    Benoit.
