ASA 5505 and multicasting with PIM Dense Mode?

Hi,

I'm trying to configure the 5505 to support multicasting using dense mode. According to all documentation I've found it seems that I should use the '

ip pim dense-mode' command to enable DM. However, this command doesn't seem to exist on the router:

ciscoasa(config-if)# ip pim dense-mode

                        ^

ERROR: % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

And 'help ip' yields this result:

ciscoasa(config-if)# help ip

USAGE:

[no] ip address <ip_address> [<mask>] [standby <sby_ip_addr>]

[no] ip address [<ip_address> <mask>] pppoe [setroute]

[no] ip address dhcp [setroute] [retry <4-16>]

show ip [address [<interface> | <if_name> [pppoe]]]

show ip [address [<interface> | <if_name> [dhcp lease]]]

show ip [address [<interface> | <if_name> [dhcp server]]]

....

I do have a 'pim' command, but the dense-mode subcommand is not available there either:

ciscoasa(config-if)# help pim

USAGE:

[no] pim

[no] pim accept-register {list <acl>|route-map <name>}

[no] pim old-register-checksum

[no] pim rp-address <address> [<acl>][bidir]

[no] pim spt-threshold infinity [group-list <acl>]

show pim bsr

show pim group-map [info-source]

show pim interface [<interface-name]|state-on|state-off]

show pim join-prune statistic [<interface-name>]

show pim neighbor[count|detail] [<interface-name>]

show pim range-list [config]

show pim topology [reserved|route-count]

show pim traffic

show pim tunnel [<interface-name>]

clear pim {counters|reset|topology [<address>]}

debug pim [group|interface|neighbor]

Isn't dense mode supported on the 5505? Is there another way of enabling dense mode?

I'm running ASA 8.4(1)

Thanks a lot,

Jon-Erling

ASA 5505 and multicasting with PIM Dense Mode?

Hi Jon,

What was the documentation you found regarding the command?

Unfortunately dense mode is not supported on the ASA, it only supports Sparse mode.

I am not sure if there is any plan for a future support.

Thanks,

Dense mode and SSM (Sourec Specific multicast) are not supported and there is no Plan for support.
