I manage a network comprising multiple routers each configured with ip pim dense-mode, to enable IPTV multicast traffic.
A 3rd party now provides a fully managed service to one of my subnets, bordered by a Pixx firewall. The 3rd party claim IPTV traffic will not propagate to this subnet as the Pixx will not support ip pim dense-mode. They require ip pim sparse-dense-mode configured.
My question - can i simply configure my nearest router globally, as a RP, and confgure the corresponding interface as ip pim sparse-dense-mode? I've read a few articles and find myself completely lost!
Can my network continue to stream IPTV via the dense forwarding mode currently enjoyed, in addition to sparse-dense for a single site?
Thanks in advance
