You edit the IP headers.

But packets are multi-cast for a specific reason, not just randomly. It's not like you'd have FTP or TELNET be done multi-cast. There are specific uses for it.

Either case, you change the destIP address to be unicast, which means you'd need to be able to edit the headers.
