Abstract: Much work has been done attempting to scale multicast transmission to hundreds or thousands of receivers, but typical applications requiring bulk data transfer may involve just ten or twenty sites. We have been investigating how multicast can be exploited in such an environment and have developed a small-scale sender-initiated reliable multicast protocol called TCP-XM. In order to test and evaluate this new protocol we have used it to build a reliable multicast file transfer tool called mcp. In this paper we describe the mcp transfer tool, review the design of the TCP-XM protocol, and provide experimental results from tests based on both network emulation and live wide area network transfers between sites on the UK eScience network.
