Once I needed to receive Multicast traffic from different TV providers and from different VLANs, so I had to use access-list in order to correctly transmit the igmp-report from the client to the required VLAN. If Multicast is in only one VLAN, then you can do without access-list.Continue reading “Configuring Multicast on Eltex MES2324B”
I use the D-Link DGS-3612G switch as an example.Continue reading “Configuring PIM on D-Link Switches”
I will give an example of setting up IGMP snooping on Cisco, there was a Cisco WS-C2960-24TT-L switch at hand and also some Cisco Nexus.Continue reading “Configuring IGMP snooping on Cisco”
First make a copy of the configuration file on the tftp server:
backup startup-configuration to 192.168.1.100
To configure the PIM on the HP A5800 switch, connect to the switch via telnet and enter the following commands:
1) Enable the multicast routing switch and pim-sm in vlan 963 which comes from the provider.
system-view multicast routing-enable interface Vlan-interface 963 ip address 172.24.24.158 255.255.255.252 pim sm quit
2) Turn on pim-sm and igmp in vlan 964 on which IPTV will be broadcast to the local network.
interface Vlan-interface 964 ip address 172.25.25.25 255.255.192.0 pim sm igmp enable quit
3) We’ll assign the static ip from which the multicast is broadcast.
pim static-rp 10.0.200.200 quit
4) Add the route to ip from which the multicast is broadcast.
ip route-static 10.0.200.200 255.255.255.255 Vlan-interface963 172.24.24.157
5) Suppose that we accept multicast on vlan 963 tag.
interface Bridge-Aggregation1 port hybrid vlan 963 tagged
6) We will configure any free port for iptv verification and connect to it a computer for example with a playlist in the VLC player.
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/5 port access vlan 964
To test the health and diagnostics, you can use for example the following commands:
display pim interface display pim interface verbose display pim rp-info display pim bsr-info display pim neighbor display pim routing-table display igmp interface display pim control-message counters display pim claimed-route
