How to check if multicast is enabled? Can I use netstat or ipconfig?
(I use a little multicast based chat application. It works on the W2k machine (sending & reading), but on the XP machine I see nothing (no sent text and no received text). Do you know why? )

Thanks for hints & help!

If you type "route print" at a command prompt and you see an entry for 224.0.0.0, multicast should be enabled.

You could also install a packet sniffer like Ethereal and capture packets when using the application to see if multicast traffic is getting to you.
