i've just put up a freebsd multicast router to
do some experimentation.

below is my configuration with multicast routers denoted
by asterisks:
------------------
|	*	 | TAMU
| 165.91.128.36  |-------<<<<--------MBONE
|		 |GATEWAY
------------------
	|
	| tunnel
	|
	|
------------------           ---------------------          ----------
|sparc*		 | ethernet  |	 freebsd 2.0.5*  | ethernet |sparc   |
| 128.194.169.93 |-----------|169.53 	   166.4 |----------| 166.5  |
|	3.8	 |	     |		3.3      |          |        |
------------------           ---------------------          ----------

the freebsd machine is not forwarding from one physical interface(ed0)
to another(ed1).

the multicast routing tables are filled properly.  IGMP messages seem
to be working, but for some reason the freebsd machine is not forwarding 
packets either way.  should i upgrade it to 3.8?  if so, can i do that 
without upgrading the OS?  here's what happens when i start mrouted:

debug level 2
mrouted version 3.3
installing ed0 (128.194.169.53 on subnet 128.194.169) as vif #0 - rate=0
installing ed1 (128.194.166.4 on subnet 128.194.166) as vif #1 - rate=0
pruning on

Virtual Interface Table

                         pkts in : 0
                         pkts out: 0

 1    ed1  128.194.166.4   subnet: 128.194.166      1   1      0   querier
                         pkts in : 0
                         pkts out: 0


Multicast Routing Table (2 entries)

 128.194.169                        1       0    1*



cheers,
