    Default SuseFirewall2 is blocking multicast traffic

    I verified that the firewall is blocking multicast traffic. If the firewall is turned off multicast is working correctly. As soon as the firewall is turned on no multicast packages are received anymore (blocked by the frewall).

    How can the firewall be configured to allow multicast messages?

    Hi
    Have a look at the file called;
    Code:
    /etc/sysconfig/scripts/SuSEfirewall2-custom
