[Spread-users] Basic question about communication between daemons

No, they should hear each others' traffic.  More than likely your daemons
are not finding one another.  The most likely reason I can think of for that
is that your network isn't allowing broadcast.  Try a multicast address

Subject: [Spread-users] Basic question about communication between daemons

Hi all,
I have some doubts about how spread works. I have two machines 

spread.conf (same on both nodes):
Spread_Segment {

Trying to comunicate both, I run this command on host2:
goodfood at host2>  ./spuser -s 4803
Spread library version is 4.0.0
User: connected to 4803 with private group #user#host2

and join the group "monitor". Now here is the doubt. If on the host1 I
connect like this:

goodfood at host1> ./spuser -s 4803

joining the group "monitor" and sending a message, host2 doesn't receive the
but instead if I connect like this:
goodfood at host1> ./spuser -s 4803 at host2

It works. Is this the expected behaviour? I supposed that every daemon
communicates with each others. 
Where could it be the problem?
