Re: multicast routers

Hi,

Multicast traffic destined to a multicast MAC address, Only routers enabled multicast routing protocol can be member of this multicast MAC addresses and receive the traffic and do multicast routing. Non-multicast routers will drop the multicast packets at the layer2 itselft.

Thx
