// Define a MulticastOption object specifying the multicast group  
// address and the local IPAddress. 
// The multicast group address is the same as the address used by the server.
mcastOption = new MulticastOption(mcastAddress, localIPAddr);

mcastSocket.SetSocketOption(SocketOptionLevel.IP, 
                            SocketOptionName.AddMembership, 
                            mcastOption);
