I mean the network adapter created by a virtualization tool (like VMware).
I verified that a client on win7 with a such network adapter active does
not work (I'm talking about udp multicast, while TCP works perfectly).
On the other side if I disable the "real" card and then enable it again,
udp starts magically working.

Any idea?
