Is the client installed on a Linux machine ? If so, are you sure that
"IP Multicast support" is compiled in your kernel ? It should work fine
with Windows 2000 or XP. Please, do not use vlc 0.5 for such tests, but
prefer vlc 0.4.2 (or even 0.4.1 which has been more tested especially
under Windows, cf my Bug report in this mailing-list)
