default value for IP_MULTICAST_TTL?

  1. Hello,
    I was debbuging for awile because my multicast packages I've sended
    were not received on other hosts.
    I figured out that a value of 1 of IP_MULTICAST_TTL was the reason for
    the failure - restriction to local subnet.

    What suggest you which value should I choose by default vor
    IP_MULTICAST_TTL (for instance if you are programming a networking
    library)?

    reagards,
    oliver
