Hi Manik,

As you mentioned, multicast is not supported on a multi-context FWSM. This is documented in the configuration guide:

Hope that helps.

Manik,

As Mike mentioned you cannot do Multicast Routing in Multiple Context Mode. But, you can bridge the multicast packets in Multiple Context Mode by making the context a L2 Firewall.

Multicast bridging is supported
