    Well, no.

    First, multicast doesn't really work on loopback. I don't recall why...
    One symptom of this is that one can't use the multicast transport for
    User-Mode-Linux when not "online" (i.e. on the train).

    Second, testing it via ping to 224.0.0.1 isn't really the right test.
    You have to join a multicast group, etc...

    So, I don't think that the test was done right.
