Multiple shares in NMDC, revisited

Multiple shares in NMDC have been on topic for years, and will probably continue for years to come. Well, the current approach is simple; use a different port in each hub you’re in. So, if you’re in 5 hubs, the ports used will be (e.g.) 5000, 5001, 5002, 5003 and 5004 when using the CTM/RCM.

That this solution isn’t scalable haven’t bothered people to implement it. Patching a bad protocol does not make the protocol suddendly good. Oh well… People are free to implement away.
