I don't know about mrouted (for tunnelling I believe) but I do know of
Win95 versions of sdr, and vic...possibility vat as well.

The reflector can use multicast when linking to other reflectors. The
White Pine reflectors can also accept multicast connections from
multicast-capable clients when they use 2.1.1 or later I believe of
Enhanced CU-SeeMe. I have heard of success with the Enhanced CU client
using multicast on a LAN (ethernet) just not over a modem.
