Multicast Does not work between different VLANS

Hi,

I have problems with multicast. On the same VLAN i can see the SAP announcement in VLC and play, but on different VLAN i can see SAP but i cant play it. The play turn to pause and the video doesn´t appear.

I have 2 Cisco 6500 switch CORE with GLBP configured but not working. In the second switch i have all interfaces in shutdown. The first core switch have L3 routing enable.

The Global configurations:

ip multicast-routing.

I have the transmitter PC on vlan 51 i transmit to 230.0.0.50 group an im trying to recive on vlan 80. The vlans configurations are:

Vlan 51

ip address x.x.31.254 255.255.255.0

ip pim sparse-dense-mode

Vlan 80

ip address x.x.80.1 255.255.255.0

ip pim sparse-dense-mode

I have 2 Cisco 2960 (L2 only) for the access.

The principal commands outputs are:

CORE1#show ip mroute | inc 230.0.0.50

(*, 230.0.0.50), 01:50:50/00:02:21, RP 0.0.0.0, flags: DC

Someone can help?

Multicast Does not work between different VLANS

Alfredo

When you setup the stream in VLC did you make sure you increased the TTL of the stream ? By default VLC sets the ttl to 1 which means it will only work in the same vlan. For each hop you need to increase the TTL by 1 so as you are going from vlan 51 to vlan 80 try a TTL of 2 or greater and see if it works.

Hi Jon, thanks for your answer.

I increase the TTL to 255 but it doesnt works.

Are both devices connected to core 1 switch ?

I have the transmitter and the receiver conected to the same access switch (Cisco 2960), this switch are conected to another 2960 switch and this is conected to the CORE1 by a trunk port.

All the access switch are un L2, the only one that are in L3 and working is the CORE1. The interfaces vlans are in define in the CORE1 too.

Are the 2 2960 switches interconnected with a trunk link that allows both vlans ?

Yes i can make ping to the default gateways in both VLANS and surf the internet too. How can i define the RP or how can i see if the CORE is the RP?

You shouldn't really need an RP if you ip pim sparse-dense-mode because it should fall back to dense mode. If this is just a test environment can you replace "ip pim sparse-dense-mode" with just "ip pim dense-mode" and see if it works ?

My enviroment is productive but i recently made the change to dense mode in both interfaces (51 and 80) but it doesnt works. The PC doesn´t play de video.

Is there anything else to do?

Thanks a lot.

You have access-lists applied to both vlan interfaces - are you allowing the multicast traffic ?

I remove all the ACLs (Vlans 51, 80  and 1) i  but not work.

So just to recap can you confirm all the following -

1) you have "ip pim dense-mode" configured under the vlan 51 and vlan 80 SVIs on the 6500 switch

2) you have removed all acls so there is nothing blocking any traffic flow

3) core 2 6500 is shutdown as far as vlan 51 and vlan 80 are concerned

4) you have set the TTL to be > 2 in the VLC stream

5) you are connecting to the same stream with your VLC client

If all the above is correct with dense mode can you post the output of "sh ip mroute"  whilst streaming the video.

Hi,

I think you need to configure an RP. I normally use sparse mode and configure a loopback as RP. Configure a loopback interface and add ip pim sparse-mode on all interfaces. Then add the ip pim rp-address x.x.x.x where x.x.x.x is the loopback address.

interface lo0

ip address x.x.x.x 255.255.255.255

ip pim sparse-mode

interface vlan 51

ip address x.x.31.254 255.255.255.0

ip pim sparse-mode

interface vlan 80

ip address x.x.80.1 255.255.255.0

ip pim sparse-mode

ip pim rp-address x.x.x.x

Hi Johnd thanks for your answer, i made that you said but it does not works.

I configure the loopback 1 with the ip address 192.168.230.230 255.255.255.0 and the ip pim sparse-mode. Then i remove all the ACls on the vlan interfaces and the ip pim rp-address 192.168.230.230.

I install wireshark on the receiver PC and i filter by multicast address 230.0.0.50 and i can see the igmp join request but the switch never send the traffic.

Anymore to do?

Thanks a lot.

As previously requested can you revert back to dense mode, run the stream from VLC and then post the output of "sh ip mroute".

The reason for using dense mode is that it only requires the most basic config.

Can you confirm that you set the stream running through VLC and then you fire off another VLC on the client and try to connect to that stream ?

Hi Jon, now i revert back to dense mode all interfaces.

This is the output for the show ip mroute associate with the multicast stream.

(*, 230.0.0.50), 00:16:21/00:02:43, RP 0.0.0.0, flags: DC

  Incoming interface: Null, RPF nbr 0.0.0.0

  Outgoing interface list:

    Vlan80, Forward/Sparse, 00:16:21/00:02:43

    Vlan254, Forward/Sparse-Dense, 00:16:21/00:00:00

I stop all the VLC receivers on vlan 80 an try to connect again but not work.

Hi

What client are you using? Windows 7 or XP? Check for client firewall issues and client/server mtu issues. What is the output of the show ip mroute active command when the server  is sending the stream?  On the 2960 switches the client is connected to what is the ouput of the show ip igmp snoooping groups?

Hi johnd...

Im using VLC 1.1.2 (i can not update because i have a DVDT2 card to capture the digital terrestrial television and it only work in this version). I have all the firewalls down.

This is the output for the show ip igmp snooping groups on the 2960.

80        230.0.0.50               igmp        v2          Gi1/0/21, Gi1/0/24

Port G1/0/21 is where the receiver is conected and the 24port is the trunk.

Jon, i revert and this is the output. I put the ip pim rp-address the same of the lookpback that i create previously.

(*, 230.0.0.50), 00:37:46/00:02:19, RP 192.168.230.230, flags: SJC

  Incoming interface: Null, RPF nbr 0.0.0.0

  Outgoing interface list:

    Vlan80, Forward/Dense, 00:09:52/00:00:00

The strange thing is that I have more than 40 vlans and it only fail in some vlans like 80.

Hall of Fame Super Blue

Okay, lets try and break this down logically.

1) pick a vlan where it does work and use vlan 80 for one that doesn't

2) describe exactly where the source of the stream and the client of the stream are for both scenarios. What i mean by this is which switch is the source/client connected to and how is this switch connected back to the core. So for both scenarios ie. one that works and vlan 80 we need the full path in terms of switches etc. between the source and client.

3) post the L3 SVI configs for source/client vlans from the core switches
