Testing Multicast Packet filtering


I am in verse to test "Multicast Packet filtering".I want to setup Virtual Machines to be servers with bind option set to a multicast group address of 225.0.62.87.Then I want to configure the client VM, connecting to the multicast group address and setting the TTL as needed.
Any idea how can it be possible ?

What you should do is edit your post using the edit button and include the following:
0. what virtualization software (or paravirtualization) you will be using including versions,
1. what VM guest operating system distribution and version you will be using,
2. what you have read up on so far about making multi-cast work in Linux kernel,
3. where you succeeded testing VM guests to see multi-cast works as advertised.

0 I am using ESX 4.1
1 I will be using CentOS as server and client
2 I read that the following entry is needed:

* CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST=y
* CONFIG_IP_ROUTER=y
* CONFIG_IP_MROUTE=y
* CONFIG_NET_IPIP=y

Also,The default Red Hat / Fedora kernels are compiled to support multicast.
