So are you trying to send one netsend to multiple netreceives? For
computers on the LAN, i just use the local ip address - usually
something like 192.168.0.x or 10.0.0.x
Perhaps you could have multiple netsend's for the number of computers
that need to receive the data?
I've not used netsend with an internet ip address, but you might want
to look at port forwarding
