I was playing around with multicast and I've run into a situation I would like your comments :)
I have 4 routers connected like this:
-R3 is a static configured RP.
-all interfaces except R1 are running PIM-SM.
From R1, I'm sending a ping to a multicast address using Loopback0 IP as source and sending it out via the interface to R2 (using an extended ping to be sure the exit interface and source addr).
Making no ip mroute-cache and debugging ip mpacket I see that R2 is giving a RPF check error. I've checked R2 with "show ip rpf R1-Lo0" and it shows the correct interface, also correct exit interface in the routing table and CEF.
If I source the multicast ping using the interface (physical) address then everything works fine.
Can someone give me a hint why I can't source it from the loopback? Shouldn't it be possible?
regarding your explanation i don`t think if that`s the correct answer or not :) since R1 is not the client but the server and R2 now is receiving a source (126.96.36.199,MLTIADD) and for him it have to listen to this stream only from the RP since 188.8.131.52 or from a connected source and the loop0 isn`t a connected interface.
Since you are using sparse mode so it will perform and RPF check on the RP ignoring the add 184.108.40.206 and it will see that the interface from where it`s receiving the stream isn`t the one for the RP
