I just want to do a multicast forwarding on a Cisco 3560 switch. In this case, I want to set up a forwarding rule for Fa0/5: Forwarding 184.108.40.206(an IP for multicasting) to Fa0/1. How can I do that? Many thanks!
If its just a matter of forwarding multicast traffic on one particular port then you can opt for static entries for multicast mac address in CAM entry.
Something like this
mac-address-table static vlan interface
But remember this is the least-scalable solution for an environment that has a lot of multicast applications. If you want to scale your multicast network with multiple subnets and switches and routers then you may need to opt for multicast routing invonving PIM and IGMP snooping.
As I mentioned if your switch is running advanced services image it will support multicast routing.
Just follow the commands which I have mentioned in my previous post. Because IGMP snooping is bydefault enable when your machine will start pumping multicast traffic it will only reach your fa0/1 interface because your receiver on fa0/1 interface will start sending IGMP report packets which switch will snoop and find out on which port your receiver exist.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
