which will be used for that. Otherwise, your packet will be sent over the
default interface, which is, probably, not what you want.

See if your python thing somehow allows to specify the network interface
to be used when sending multicast packets.
You are right, Thanks to the VMs, I have multiple active interfaces. I'll try multicasting to the specific interface connected to the Kindle (Host_Ethernet-->router-->Kindle_Wifi).

Thanks for the tip.
