Here are some of the things we are working on SSM wise:


1) An automatic multicast tunnel that supports IGMPv3 and SSM.  You load 
client software on to
a Windows box and it automatically tunnels off to a Linux server to receive 
multicast via
unicast.  Hopefully this will encourage SSM adoption.  More info at 
http://www.internet2.edu/~admytren


2) Use of SSM here is held up by the lack of IP Router Alert option in IGMP 
packets from
our Juniper router.  Apparently this causes Windows XP to ignore the packets.
