I am an embedded programmer, working for a company that does embedded digital video and audio. I have a homepage.

I generally prefer to give solid answers than hasty ones... which means I get beat to the punch a fair bit.

comment Unicast to multicast via iptables
This comment set me down the route of using a multicast routing daemon, so I'm accepting it.

Found a solution; it relates to the answers provided but uses a different set of iptables rules.

I realized this afternoon I never got back to you. I spent some time playing with mrouted and smcroute -- neither allowed my trick as given above.

comment Unicast to multicast via iptables
It turns out to be set to "y" in the kernel config. Additional Googling indicates I need to install a multicast routing daemon to get it to go to "1" -- which, given the cross-compilation situation, may mean the simplest solution is to go with my alternate plan. I'll see about double-checking with a multicast routing daemon when I get the chance, and accept your answer if it works.

Hmm, mc_forwarding is zero and refuses to go to one, so I'd better check my kernel config.

I indeed do have ip_forward enabled -- but good thought, I should have mentioned that.
