well, what is the point of multihoming an internal server at all?

that's the job of the firewall/router/gateway but on your LAN you just
have a 192.168.x.x network with no non-default routes and just the
gateway which only is part of the game when a machine want to talk to
something not in the own LAN

every other traffic stays in the LAN and don't touch the
router/gateway/firewall, even not multicast on a proper device with
"multicast off allmulticast off" since there is no point dealing with
multicast packets on the firewall
