How to implement the IGMP in Linux?

I would like to test IGMP and multicast address. Could you please show me some working example to learn it in better way please. Many thanks!

as per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Group_Management_Protocol

The Linux operating system supports IGMP. The Linux kernel at the core of the operating system only implements IGMP as host side, not router side, however a daemon such as mrouted can be used to act as a IGMP Linux router. There are also entire routing suites (such as XORP), which turn an ordinary computer into a full-fledged multicast router.

I use VLC to play around with multicast.

It can multicast a videoclip out on the lan using RDP, and you can setup clients on multiple pc's to receive the multicast stream.
