Hi,


I am trying to make the Multicast working between two vlans defined in FWSM..

Hosts are running mysql cluster and Multicast is used to send master/slave status

information to the IP 228.10.10.10 on port 45566.



The vlan is  defined in FWSM and the host are connected via the core-switch(6513).

(hosts-->core-sws--->fwsm).. FWSM is running code 3.1(4).

I have enabled <multicast-routing> in FWSM. Just wondering if this is enough

to make it working ?


Any advice is higly appreciated.


Thanks in Advance.

Enabling multicast routing will enable pim on the FWSM interfaces so need to explicitly configure PIM. But you will need to configure an RP (Rendevous Point) for each multicast group. See attached for details -
