Multicast with more than one network interface


Hi!

If I have set up 2 network interfaces on a box, if I started sending multicast traffic, it will go out through both interfaces? Or is there a way to control through which interface it will go out?

Thanks in advance.

Apparently, routing decision is just like any other routing done in IPv4.... can select where the traffic will go out by adding a routing item like:

Code:
ip route add 224.0.0.0/4 dev eth1
