How to enable multicast for JINI?

Hi,

I set up Jini 1.1 on one of my MacOS X machines. So far Jini works fine but I'm having a hard time with multicast. As Jini for some functionality needs to make multicast calls using UTP. I know how to set up multicast on a Linux machine but unfortunately the same didn't work on MacOS X.

ifconfig en0 shows me MULTICAST so it must be activated in the Kernel but it seems that I'm missing something:

en0: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,b6,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.2 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
ether 00:12:65:6a:45:a8
media: autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>) status: active
supported media: none autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <
full-duplex> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex>

I would appreciate any hint's how to get multicast working?

regards
Dario :confused:
