I have an IOS application built by Corona, that broadcasts and multicasts its presence onto the network it is running on. The application works flawlessly when the iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network. In this case, other devices on the network receive the broadcasts/multicasts, and everything functions correctly.
Needless to say, the application works well on an iPhone connected to a local Wi-Fi.
When I run the application on an iPhone that has its personal hotspot enabled, no broadcasts/multicasts are released onto the hotspot network.
Is there any constraint regarding using a personal hotspot as a network router capable of handling broadcasts and multicasts?
Can anyone explain why an iPhone running a personal hotspot does not broadcast/multicast packets, and how to solve the problem?
Many thanks in advance.
