Abstract
Reliable multicast protocols are becoming an essential
element in distributed applications such as interactive dis­
tance learning applications. However, the existing imple­
mentations of reliable multicast protocols are not sufficient
to satisfy the group communications requirements of some
distributed applications. Our experience of using number
of multicast protocols in IRI distance learning applications
shows the necessity of providing an application­layer Reli­
