Checkpoint FW1 block all multicast traffic just started. Multicast should
be described as network 188.8.131.52 with netmask 240.0.0.0 and "allow broadcast".
But it's dirty trick only to accept multicast messages on some FW-1's
Sorry, I have no info about Raptor and Pix.
Gauntlet ( TIS ) is a set of application proxies, which do not support
multicast ( IMHO ).
