Uh, do you have 'options MROUTING' compiled into your kernel? Not
having seriously used the mcast code, i'm not 100% sure, but reading
the netstat man page, i see:
-g Show information related to multicast (group address) routing. By
default, show the IP Multicast virtual-interface and routing ta-
bles. If the -s option is also present, show multicast routing
if there's no multicast routing code around, i'd assume it wouldn't
work. (i think it should give a better error message than that,
if you _do_ have multicast code compiled into your kernel, well, then
it's obviously a different problem. probably, the queue structures
aren't being manipulated properly, or something...
