Multicast Routing Configuration

When configuring multicast routing, go to these sections for information you are interested in: Multicast Routing Overview Configuring Multicast Routing

The term router in this document refers to a network device running an IP routing protocol.

Multicast Routing Overview

In multicast implementations, multicast routing is implemented by two types of tables: Multicast routing table specific to a multicast routing protocol, such as PIM routing table. General multicast routing table formed by the information of different multicast routing tables. A multicast routing table consists of a set of (S, G) entries, each indicating the routing information for delivering multicast data from a multicast source to a multicast group. If a router supports multiple multicast protocols, its multicast routing table includes routes generated by multiple protocols. The router chooses the optimal route from the multicast routing table based on the configured multicast routing policy.

Configuring Multicast Routing

Configuration Prerequisites
Before configuring multicast routing, you need to configure a unicast routing protocol so that all devices in the domain are interconnected at the network layer.

Configuration Overview
Perform the tasks in Table 1-1 to configure multicast routing. Table 1-1 Multicast routing configuration task list
Task Required Enabling Multicast Routing Globally enable multicast routing. By default, multicast routing is disabled. Multicast routing must be enabled before other Layer 3 multicast functions can take effect. Remarks


Task Required Displaying Multicast Routing Table


Display multicast routing table entries that are calculated by a specific multicast routing protocol. The multicast routing table is the basis of multicast forwarding. You can view the establishment state of an (S, G) entry by checking the multicast routing table.

Enabling Multicast Routing

After you log into the Web interface, select Network > Routing Management > Multicast Routing from the navigation tree to enter the Global Configuration page, as shown in Figure 1-1. Figure 1-1 Global configuration page

Table 1-2 describes multicast routing configuration items. Table 1-2 Items of the multicast routing configuration
Item Multicast routing Description Enable or disable multicast routing globally.

Displaying Multicast Routing Table

After you log into the Web interface, select Network > Routing Management > Multicast Routing from the navigation tree and click Multicast Routing Table to enter the display page, as shown in Figure 1-2. Click the entry. icon to enter the page displaying the detailed information of the specified table

Item Source address An (S, G) entry of the multicast routing table Group address Incoming interface Number of outgoing interfaces Outgoing interfaces Upstream interface of the (S, G) entry, which multicast packets should arrive at. Number and list of downstream interfaces, which need to forward multicast packets. Description
