No code?
Were any VM's successful?
Did you try it with BasicSocket.do_not_reverse_lookup = true?

yes

now, yes

Did you try 1.9.1 on doze?

now, yes

-r

Some other test :
Linux : ok with ruby 1.8 (ubuntu 9.10 and "route add 224.0.0.0..." )
windows : ruby 1.9.1 : Nok (no receive)
                     (TCP/IP on ruby 1.9/windows is realy broken !)

==========================================================
here i my test code (working file in attachement) :

Thread.abort_on_exception = true
Socket.do_not_reverse_lookup = true

class MulticastSender
def initialize(ip,port)
    @ip,@port=[ip,port]
  @addr = IPAddr.new(@ip).hton + IPAddr.new("0.0.0.0").hton
  @version=0
  puts "Emitter mutlticast in " + ip + "/" + port.to_s + " ..."
  Thread.new { loop { run ; sleep(3) } }
end

def run
  @version+=1
  @version = @version % 1000
  socket = UDPSocket.open
  #socket.setsockopt(Socket::IPPROTO_IP, Socket::IP_TTL, [10].pack('i'))
  max=1+rand(3)
  0.upto(max) { |no|
    mess = Time.now.to_f.to_s
  puts "sending mc " + mess
    socket.send(mess, 0, @ip , @port)
  sleep(0.01)
  }
ensure
  socket.close rescue puts $!.to_s
end
end

class MulticastReceiver
def initialize(ip,port)
    @sip,@port=[ip,port]
  @version=0
  host = IPAddr.new(@sip).hton + IPAddr.new("0.0.0.0").hton
    sock = UDPSocket.new
    sock.bind(Socket::INADDR_ANY, port) if isWindows()

    sock.setsockopt(Socket::IPPROTO_IP, Socket::IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP, host)
    sock.setsockopt(Socket::IPPROTO_IP, Socket::IP_MULTICAST_LOOP,
"\000") if defined?(Socket::IP_MULTICAST_LOOP)
  sock.setsockopt(Socket::IPPROTO_IP, Socket::IP_MULTICAST_TTL, 3)
if defined?(Socket::IP_MULTICAST_TTL)
    sock.setsockopt(Socket::IPPROTO_IP, Socket::IP_TTL, 3)
if defined?(Socket::IP_TTL)

    sock.bind(Socket::INADDR_ANY, port) unless isWindows()

  puts "Wait receiving mutlticast in " + @sip + "/" + port.to_s + " ..."
  Thread.new { loop { run(sock) } }
end
def run(sock)
   msg, (family, port, hostname, address) = sock.recvfrom(1024)
   d=Time.now
   puts "MSG: from #{address} (#{hostname})/#{family} len #{msg.size} ==
#{msg.inspect }"
end
end

Some other test :
Linux : ok with ruby 1.8 (ubuntu 9.10 and "route add 224.0.0.0..." )

I assume Linux 1.9.x works, too, then?

windows : ruby 1.9.1 : Nok (no receive)
                     (TCP/IP on ruby 1.9/windows is realy broken !)

What else is broken?
You can report bugs on redmine.ruby-lang.org

jruby 1.4.0 : error on socket.bind

I reported a bug to them.

jruby 1.4.0 : error on socket.bind

works for me with all versions of ruby on windows... (windows 7).

You should definitely try JRuby 1.5.1. There were hundreds of bug
fixes, including many for sockets.
