After having prepared the fourth draft of the Application Layer Protocol over RTP BCP, I was eager to perform a test session with the “server-less” distributed mode.
coderextreme suggested to use the official Web3D DIS examples to run them over a VPN.
Well, DIS and in particular IP multicasting, run well over my “Tiny Experimental VPN“.
This gives hope for the “server-less distributed mode” (SLDM) of the ALP.
Generally asking myself, why HLA/DIS and the NSN/ALP must be enemies in the future. According to rumours, the military and the NASA will use HLA/DIS until 2035. So why shouldn’t we accept that we run into an era of parallel MU protocols?
