I'm trying to get PIM SM working throug an ASA. All works as expected on the side of the firewall where the source (IPTV Server) resides
but am getting nothing on the inside interface. The traffic originated on a lower security interface.
I have the source connected to a 6500 on the lower security interface which also acts as the RP.
The 6500 on the inside points to the same RP on the lower security interface.
Multicast routing is enabled on the ASA and the relevant interfaces have PIM enabled with the ASA also pointing to the same RP.
I had this working in dense mode but wanted to change to sparse. Are there any NAT/Access-list issues I may have overlooked on the ASA ?
I did see an issue where the firewall was complaining the the rpf route was not from a PIM neighbour but that was because the route back was via an HSRP address. I changed that to a physical address and that issue cleared.
The first test is to pick up a stream on group 184.108.40.206 which advertises available TV channels. I never see the channel list on the inside stations.
Any help would be appreciated.
