Description

Due to the fact that the receiving address of a multicast package is not the address of a specific computer but instead the one of the multicast group, the current connection lookup mechanism cannot associate such packages to any process on the host, because the address is compared in addition to the port, which of course still matches.

Handle IPv4 Multicast

There needs to be special handling for multicast because the destination
address of a multicast package is not the address of the computer. This
commit implements the required handling for IPv4, IPv6 is still missing.

IPv4 at least working now. What is lacking is the detection whether we have a multicast message for IPv6. Should be doable in limited time.
