I didn't follow this. Are you assuming that the local AV does or may not have the peer's address?
What I was trying to say is that I receive a message on node B. There may be many nodes in the job. Is there any info in the completion that tells me which node (A,C,D….Z) sent the message, or must I add my own address to each message? With EP_MSG I have an endpoint per connection, so I know which node sent me the message because I know which connection it came from, with EP_RDM I don’t. is there a way of retrieving the message sender from the receiving end?
