[ excerpt taken from developer's www site ]

UDPcast is a file transfer tool that can send data simultaneously
to many destinations on a LAN. This can for instance be used to
install entire classrooms of PC's at once. The advantage of UDPcast
over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that UDPcast uses
Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to install 15
machines than it would to install just 2.

For multimedia/vic a PR was filed

Unfortunately, IPv4 multicast is very nearly a thing of the (distant) past.
None of these ports are maintained, almost all of them are not up to date
with the latest versions, most of which were released many years ago.
