I want to tunnel multicast DNS (zeroconf/rendezvous, multicast
group 224.0.0.251, port 5353) between four subnets. The routers
connecting these subnets do not route multicast, and I don't
control the router. But I do have linux boxes in all four
subnets. Is there a simple way for me to tunnel multicast
between the subnets over unicast packets, making use of something
like vtun or something that makes use of the Linux 2.4 tap/tun
interface??

Thanks!
