Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Urgent Question regarding, MPI_ANY_SOURCE.

When you use MPI_ANY_SOURCE in a receive, the rank of the actual sender is passed back to you in the status.MPI_SOURCE.

Let say process B does not know that A is the sender. But I want B to receive message from process A (the one who actually sends the message to process B). But if I use MPI_ANY_SOURCE, then any message from any source is captured by process B (let say there are other processes sending messages). Instead of MPI_ANY_SOURCE I cannot use A in the source argument as B does not know about the sender. What should I do in this situation ?
