Multicast Routing problem


  I have a Cisco 877W which is configured to have two seperate WLANs one in the IP Range 192.168.0.x and the other in IP Range  The issue have is that I have a DLNA server in the 192.168.0.x network and I am trying to get one of the machines on the 192.168.1.x network to be able to see it.

I have been trying various things to make it work but so far no success.  The interface config currently looks like this:

ip multicast routing

interface Dot11Radio0.1
description Main Wireless
encapsulation dot1Q 1 native
ip nat inside
ip virtual-reassembly
bridge-group 1
bridge-group 1 subscriber-loop-control
bridge-group 1 spanning-disabled
bridge-group 1 block-unknown-source
no bridge-group 1 source-learning
no bridge-group 1 unicast-flooding
interface Dot11Radio0.2
description Dan Home
encapsulation dot1Q 2
ip nat inside
ip virtual-reassembly
bridge-group 2
bridge-group 2 subscriber-loop-control
bridge-group 2 spanning-disabled
bridge-group 2 block-unknown-source
no bridge-group 2 source-learning
no bridge-group 2 unicast-flooding

interface BVI1
description Bridge for VLAN 1
ip address
ip pim dense-mode
ip nat inside
ip virtual-reassembly
ip igmp version 3
interface BVI2
description Bridge for VLAN 2
ip address
ip pim dense-mode
ip nat inside
ip virtual-reassembly
ip igmp version 3

Before this I also tried using

ip forward-protocol udp 1900

int BVI2

ip helper-address (DLNA Server)

which didn't work either.

I can provide the outputs of any show commands you need but if someone could give me an idea where I am going wrong that would be great.

Re: Multicast Routing problem

Hello Dan,

I would suggest to capture traffic on vlan where the server is connected: check if TTL is greater then 1 or the traffic cannot be multicast routed

you can use wireshark on a Pc receiving the stream for this.

Hope to help

Re: Multicast Routing problem

Hi Giuseppe,

  Thanks for coming back to me.  This was originally a problem however I have since built my own test application that sends the packets with a TTL of 5 whilst I work out how to make the change on the DLNA server and they still don't seem to get through when I monitor both sides with wireshark.
