Multicast ASM & SSM

Unanswered Question
Apr 15th, 2010

hi

just need to ask if we have both ssm and asm range defined in a mpls multicast domain, which would be used to establishing the tunnel incase both ssm and asm ranges are similar. is there any preference to use ssm first and then ssm or vice-versa.

ip ssm range ssm-range

ip access-list standard ssm-range

10 permit 239.232.0.0 0.0.255.255

ip pim rp-address x.x.x.x asm-range

ip access-list standard asm-range

10 permit 239.232.0.0 0.0.255.255

hope i made the question clear

I have this problem too.

Hi Manish,

SSM will take precedence as long as it's configured.

Why would you need to do that ? ASM will never be used so there is no point to implement such configuration.

Thanks

Laurent.
