Multicast Interfaces Tab
- Network > Virtual Router > Multicast > Interfaces
Use the following fields to configure multicast interfaces that share IGMP, PIM and group permission settings:
Multicast Settings – Interfaces
Enter a name to identify an interface group.
Enter an optional description.
Add one or more firewall interfaces that belong to the interface group and therefore share multicast group permissions, IGMP settings and PIM settings.
Specify multicast groups that participate in PIM Any-Source Multicast (ASM) or PIM Source-Specific Multicast (SSM):
Specify settings for IGMP traffic. IGMP must be enabled for multicast receiver-facing interfaces.
Specify Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) settings:
Configure IP Multicast
Configure a virtual router on the firewall to receive and forward IP multicast traffic by configuring the interfaces: PIM on ingress and egress interfaces, and ...
Configure IGMP for interfaces on a virtual router that are facing receivers to enable receivers to join multicast groups and to enable the virtual router ...
PIM Sparse Mode supports Any-Source Multicast (ASM) and Source-Specific Multicast (SSM); ASM requires a rendezvous point (RP). Configure PIM on ingress and egress interfaces for ...
A virtual router supports IP multicast so that it can participate in multicast protocols (IGMP and PIM) and forward multicast traffic from a source to ...
PIM Assert Mechanism
PIM uses an Assert mechanism to elect a PIM Forwarder of multicast packets on a multiaccess network, which prevents forwarding of duplicate multicast packets. ...
Shortest-Path Tree (SPT) and Shared Tree
IP Multicast constructs shortest-path tree (SPT) and shared tree distribution paths to forward multicast packets to members of a group. ...
PIM uses reverse-path forwarding (RPF) to prevent routing loops and to build a shortest-path tree from the receiver back to the multicast source. ...
