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?
The more, the we are in an era of two popes, one “emeritus” and one “agens” 🙂
