on the UML from where you were running the listener. you might notice that
does not have any routes to handle the class D address that is being opened
run the following command to add a default route pointing to the default
for that particular machine.
route add default gw nearest_router's_IP_address
command and make sure that you have a default route installed.
listener should work now.
also, as handout pointed out.. please change the IGMP version as well.

We were trying to make UML listen for multicast messages (or at least send
IGMP report msg to router) by using given "listener.c" program.
But it fails with error saying "setsockopt: No such device". We were
wondering if we need to provide the router's interface address explicitly or
setsockopt() would do it internally, based on the IP multicast address?
