Hi all


I have the following very basic setup


Router 1 - 2800_lab


interface GigabitEthernet0/1

ip address 10.5.1.1 255.255.255.0

ip pim dense-mode

duplex full

speed 100

end


Router 2 - 2600_rtr2


interface FastEthernet0/1

ip address 10.5.1.2 255.255.255.0

ip pim dense-mode

speed auto

full-duplex

no cdp enable

no mop enabled

end


Both routers have "ip multicast-routing" enabled.

Both routers connect to a 3560 switch on their gi0/0 and fa0/1 interfaces respectively.

The 3560 switch has IGMP snooping turned on.


I also have a solaris server connected to the same switch - 10.5.1.12.


I ran a network sniffer on the solaris server and i am still seeing EIGRP updates coming through to the server


10.5.1.1 -> 224.0.0.10 IP D=224.0.0.10 S=10.5.1.1 LEN=60, ID=0, TOS=0xc0, TTL=2

10.5.1.2 -> 224.0.0.10 IP D=224.0.0.10 S=10.5.1.2 LEN=60, ID=0, TOS=0xc0, TTL=2

10.5.1.1 -> 224.0.0.10 IP D=224.0.0.10 S=10.5.1.1 LEN=60, ID=0, TOS=0xc0, TTL=2

10.5.1.2 -> 224.0.0.10 IP D=224.0.0.10 S=10.5.1.2 LEN=60, ID=0, TOS=0xc0, TTL=2


1) Why am i still seeing EIGRP multicast packets on the solaris server ?

2) Why do the following outputs make no mention of EIGRP 224.0.0.10

Hi Jon,


IGMP and CGMP does not work for reserved multicast addresses and as EIGRP used 224.0.0.10 which is one of the address from reserved multicast address range IGMP will not work it and will be flooded on ethernet segment.


Even if you try to add these addresses via a static ip igmp snooping entry it will report as message as illegal multicast address.
