<h3>Does Emulab support IP Multicast?</h3>
<p>
In short, yes, the local nodes in Emulab (but not all remote
Netbed nodes) support IP Multicast on the experimental
network. In order to use it, you must have a kernel that
supports it, and if you want multicast routing, you'll need to
enable <code>mrouted</code>. (You can do it manually, or
automatically via program objects or startup commands, but the
rtproto commands will not do it.)
