You don't need an ATM address (E.164) to set up a PVC.
To configure a PVC between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 with a VCI
value of 201 (0xc9):
# ifconfig en0 18.104.22.168 netmask 0xffffff00 up
# route add -iface 22.214.171.124 -link en0:3.0.0.c9
# pvcsif en0
# ifconfig pvc0 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 netmask 0xffffff00
# pvctxctl pvc0 201 -p 0

en0 doesn't handle multicast but pvc0 does.
