How do I configure Multicast Bridging on FWSM with multiple context.

Unanswered Question
Nov 11th, 2009

Hi There

Can't find any information regarding this feature, what I have found states that it is a feature, which only is supported when Your context is running in transparent mode, is that true. ???

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Currently we

only support multicast routing in the single routed mode. It is not

supported in multi-context mode. We do support multicast bridging, but

this would require transparent mode versus routed(only need to allow

multicast traffic via an ACL then). In addition, the

multicast routing is limited to 8 interfaces.

I hope it helps.

Thanks for Your reply.

I have recommended 2 approaches to my


Ad 1.

Move the clients that are to receive the multicast traffic onto the VLAN with the Multicast servers.

Ad 2.

I can build a setup with a seperat set of PIX hardware to move the multicast traffic onto the costumers secure network.
