None I'm afraid it probably isn't tested much 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues

Each individual network client driver is responsible for implementing
multicast filtering.  I suspect that this capability is generally not
very well tested (if tested at all).  So I am not surprised to hear
that it doesn't seem to work for the drivers you tried.

It would be nice to figure out exactly which drivers have working
multicast filtering, and try to fix the ones that don't.  I don't have
a trivial way of testing drivers for this but I'll look into it.

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
