881 doesn't support multicast under VoIP dial-peer- any alternative?
My customer has a Hoot n Holler application on their entreprise that consists of 7936s plugged into fxs ports which PLAR to a VoIP dial-peer with "session protocol multicast" and that, of course, gets multicast around the enterprise.
So my challenge is that I have a new remote site with a C881 with universal code. It supports voice and multicast, but come to find out the hard way, there isn't a "session protocol" option for multicast. Cisco is saying that it multicast is not supported for dial-peers on the C881 yet but is road-mapped. My question: can anyone think of any alternatives- perhaps something to the effect of PLARing the fxs to an MTP that could multicast, or converting uni-cast to multi-cast, or anything?
I'm at a loss........and I'm stuck in Minneapolis because of it......

Quite honestly, I find your post most unprofessional and unhelpful. Yes,
And it's not pulling a rabbit out of a hat, its called engineering. Research was done: Support for voice, SRST, H323, 3DES, IPSEC, multicast, OSPF, GRE, VIFs technology was verified along with ensuring the platform had the required fxo, fxs and PoE interfaces and quanities. Multicast on the C881SRST is supported under physical interfaces, GRE tunnels, and VIFs. The fact that multicast is supported underall those interfaces but not under a dial-peer, I consider a booby-trap, not poor planning.
It is not called "pulling a rabbit out of a hat", it is called engineering. Perhaps next time you could try to be a little more helpful like my friend James here, rather than being so rude and unprofessional. Andrew offers up something; there's also the idea of peering the dial-peer to a router that does support multicast under its dial-peer.
I wish I had as much time on my hands at work to look for posts I can reply to unprofessionally and rudely.
Are you getting this error “Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported. The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The value UI mode identifiers...
The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
