Multicasting Problem

Dear All

I have some problems with multicasting and im new to linux.

I have two Different netwoks say A and B

network A is using vide conferencing and thus using multicasting
extensively. network B uses normal operations like mail , file
transfer etc.

I dont want to completly allow multicast packets to come in to network B
it will add so much traffic in network B and affect the performance.

Now some of my clients in network B wants multicasting from network A.

How can this be setup using a linux box as router. is it possible to
have a multicast group and certain clients can be
added to that. How this is done. How can i allow multicasting for
specific clients in network B.

Now i have a linux box as router and i have done natting in that
and where ever multicast is required im doing seperate unicats.

Can anybody please find some time to help me in this regard. Thanks in advance
