Multicast - SLP problem...
I am having some problems setting up SLP (for a Novell client install). SLP
is running on the workstation as if I use Konqueror I can browse the services available locally but I can't seem to find any out on the network.
I have added a multicast route:
# route add -net 188.8.131.52 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev ra0
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 ra0
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
base-address.mc * 240.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 ra0
default . 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ra0
but if I ping the multicast address it doesn't even reply from itself
(tested on another workstation and works ok) -
# ping 184.108.40.206
Heres an ifconfig output that claims multicast is enabled:

Drivers for wireless card are ralink2500 ones not ndiswrapper
Although this is a wireless card I'm not sure if that has any bearing on the problem or not. Any help or nudging in the right direction would be much appreciated
