Networking Requirements

In the following topology, a multicast Source sends the multicast traffic to the Receiver through Switch C, Switch B and Switch A.

  • Configure C-BSR and C-RP on Switch B to utilize PIM BootStrap Router mechanism to accomplish dynamic RP election.
  • Configure ge-1/1/2 as an IGMP interface on Switch A which is connected to the Receiver.
  • In this example, the static route will be used to make the switches in PIM-SM domain can communicate with each other.

Procedure

Switch A

Step1        Configure VLAN.

Step7       Commit the configuration.

admin@Xorplus# commit

Step8       Verify the configuration.
