This was my response to an earlier email from Rich Brandwein@ATT, which
by mistake i forgot to CC: to this mailing list. 

  I am not using Collage, i am using a standard, fairly simple communication
  mechanism to do this. If all the parties involved in interaction have
  multicast-IP kernels installed, then there is absolutely no problem. The
  multicast packets would hop thru standard ip-routers without any problems. 
  Standard ip-routers see multicast packets as standard ip-packets (IP in IP
  encapsulation) , so would work just fine !
  Upgrading your Unicast Unix kernel to Multicast is not too difficult, lot
  of people are already doing it. Patches to do this are available for free.
  As for non-multicast ip machines, my version of xmosaic works fine for 
  point-to-point scenario.
