I have a Linux router (Ubuntu). It is working well with unicast but with multicast routing/forwarding I have some trouble.

The problem is that my hosts do not send igmp/mld messages thus the router does not learn that there are interested parties on a link.

How can I manually configure the forwarding. So that multicasts coming to eth0 are forwarded out eth1.

I was trying to make it work with the following command: route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 eth0

But this seems only to be used for outgoing traffic.

I also tried out smcroute, but this daemon does not work on my Ubuntu.

Is it possible with iptables to do the forwarding? Or with this route add command?

Thx!!
