I am trying to implement multicast for video streaming in our production network. So currently I have some configs set up in our test lab made up of two 3750 switches as the core layer connecting to one 4506 as the access layer. The source is a video server that's directly connected to the RP core switch. Here are the multicast configs that's on the 3750 switch.
ip multicast-routing distributed
ip igmp snooping querier address x.x.x.x <-- default gateway for vlan 142
ip igmp snooping vlan 142 immediate-leave
description Test Lab Workstation Access
ip address x.x.x.x 255.255.254.0
no ip redirects
ip pim sparse-mode
no ip route-cache cef
ip pim rp-address 10.7.7.5
I'm setting up VLAN 142 to be the only group to be receiving the multicast stream.
Now when I do a sh ip mroute, this comes up.
(*, 188.8.131.52), 1d01h/00:02:46, RP 10.7.7.5, flags: SJCL
Incoming interface: Null, RPF nbr 0.0.0.0
Outgoing interface list:
Vlan142, Forward/Sparse, 1d01h/00:02:46
As for the test, I configured the video server to stream data to 184.108.40.206. A laptop was connected to the 4506 switch whose ports are configured on vlan 142. However when I tried opening the url using the multicast address from Windows Media Player, I get an error of file not found. Anyone care to advise what the problem could be in this scenario?
