I have just purchased a SGE2010p switch. I am hoping to multicast with windows deployment services WDS
and also hoping someone might be able to give a basic explanation (configuration would be brilliant!) on the process.
On the switch webpage, we ticked the box for IGMP snooping. WDS configured with multicasting and that part of
it works. Getting transfer rates of 16,000KBps (according to WDS console). Would have thought gigabyte should be
better than that, but still better than the 250KBps without IGMP snooping.
The problem is that all traffic is still being sent to all other ports on the switch. There is only the switch
and no routers involved. Some documents indicate IGMP querier is required, but there seems no option for that that
I can find. I believe we later enabled autolearn (but not certain - dont have access to the switch at the moment)
and then WDS broke <again>.
So I am hoping someone can please educate me!
What needs to be done to prevent the switch from forwarding data to all ports
Is AutoLearn the same as an IGMP querier?
What is bridge multicast forwarding? Sounds like passing multicasts across routers?.
Do we need to create a multicast group on the switch? I would think no, that WDS does all that.
Does this switch support MLD snooping?
Any help appreciated
I have this problem too.
