Hello -

Well, I somehow figured out what was going on with my camera and it is 
working fine now.  Thanks for all the help and suggestions; it gave me a lot 
to start off of and gave me the courage to go poking around a little more.

If anyone has any advice for me on how to verify and configure multicast 
now, I'd greatly appreciate that.
