Hi Fabrizio,

VP does handle unicast. There is a known issue where if you have VIC 
and VP running then only VIC receives the video packets due to the
different ways VIC and VP bind to the receiving port. Could you please
confirm that you were running VIC at the same time and that you're
using windows? Otherwise its a separate issue.
