The i3 seems to stream whatever channel it's viewing out the ethernet
port whether you want it or not.

But... What about those of us who have a Linux firewall, with the
desktop machine on a LAN? How can I get those precious multicast packets
past my firewall onto my LAN?

I've tried adding various routes, but that won't work (and I know why -
multicast groups follow a subscription pattern, and I need to inform
upstream that I want to subscribe to a group). I've tried running pimd
and mroute on my firewall with no luck. They don't seem to find upstream
multicast routers to subscribe with.

Note that I'm using NAT on my firewall as I only get one IP address from
my ISP.

I can't find a complete or up-to-date multicast HOWTO on the 'net.

Any pointers appreciated.
