The prevailing Internet has brought many novel network applications. These applications often involve the interactions among multiple members in a single sessions. For example the images and voices of the lecturer in distance leaning must be transmitted to multiple destinations at the same time on demand. The status and opinions of any participant should also be transmitted to each other in a video conferencing for the interactivity of conversations. Without suitable protocol supports from the underlying networks, these applications may be costly and infeasible. One of the important protocol supports is the capability of multicasting, sending a single data packet to a set of receivers that are members of a multicast group. In the past, there are four well-known Internet multicast routing protocols: DVMRP, MOSPF, CBT, and PIM. In this paper, we examine the four protocols in detail. Then we propose several directions for performance improvement.
