jojuCommented:

give command
#ifconfig eth0
it should display some thing like:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
          inet addr:iii.iii.iii.iii  Bcast:iii.iii.iii.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:6846473 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:2115847 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0
          RX bytes:2253638166 (2149.2 Mb)  TX bytes:504390176 (481.0 Mb)

check for "RUNNING MULTICAST" ..
if its there multicast is enabled on interface and it can participate in any multicast group
