I have 2 processes on the same Linux box connecting with the same UDP multicast channel and port combination. The 2 processes use the same network card as the interface for send and receive. Each process is receiving duplicate copies of the packets from the source server.

I think I know the reason, but I would like to hear a more expert opinion.
