                byte[] receiveData = new byte[65508];
                byte[] sendData = new byte[65508];
                sendData = bytearray;
                InetAddress IPAddress = InetAddress.getByName("");
                InetAddress IPAddress2 = InetAddress.getByName("");            
                DatagramPacket sendPacket = new DatagramPacket(sendData, sendData.length, IPAddress, 4002);
                return "true";
            } catch (SocketException ex) {
                System.err.println("Exception SocketException senddata " + Integer.toString(4002) + ex.getMessage());
            } catch (IOException ex) {
                System.err.println("Exception IOException senddata " + Integer.toString(4002) + ex.getMessage());

    Default Re: send udp packet to ip address

    You can either send them serially or possibly "simultaneously" using threads. I put that in quotes because eventually, the interface will be sending
    them one after the other unless you are sending them out different interfaces.

    Multicast does not send out multiple packets. You would simply send out one packet to a multicast address where the message gets duplicated and transmitted
    at one or many points along the path. The whole point of it is to conserve bandwidth when dealing with multiple destinations. This also presumes that multicast
    is enabled on the network.

    Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part
