I think I understand but terminology is confusing, by "source" do you
mean the client or the server? Server/client terminology is also
confusing as "server" is simply the jackd instance that is bound to a
sound card and jackd -dnet on another machine just appears as a jack

From where to where do you want communication or both ways? That
question is actually irrelevant to netjack but it will help me to
understand what you are expecting vs what is happening.

I'm by no means an expert, but I've successfully connected machines to
one another since I first start using jack bzw. netjack.

I'll try a jack2/jack setup specifying a non-default multicast address
and let you know.
