I think that mrouted will only forward multicast packets that it knows
another interface is subscribed to so network A would have to tell the
router an IGMP packet subscribing to the multicast channel you're
talking on on network B, and vice-versa.  Not sure how to generate the
IGMP packet, it's been a while since I worked with multicast.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
