[ns] multicast for NS
Mon Apr 8 08:10:02 2002
As far as I know you are completely right. ;-) Only multicast routing is
implemented, but all the basic functions are available to implement your own
stuff, even IGMP if you like ... but personaly I don't think that there is
much interest in simulating IGMP.
