Multicasting issues

Hi, Can someone enlighten me on this subject.

I have 2 switches, a 6513 configured with vlan 50 and IP PIM SPARSE-DENSE MODE enabled.  Linked up with a 3560 also configured with vlan 50.

On the 3560, I have the source server with an image software and on the 6513, I have the clients.

When I initiate the multicast, the client do join the group and transfer begins.  However, the transfer speed is extremely slow.

Since this is a layer 2 deployment, I'm guessing that I don't need anything else.

Am I missing something ?

Thanks !

Hi,

You shouldn't need anything else.  On the layer-2 3560, did you enable "ip igmp snooping querier"

Also, it maybe the software you are using to transfer.  Usually, VLC works pretty good.

Hi Reza,

This afternoon, I was reading up on this command.  I haven't had the chance to try it.  According to documentation, this command needs a source IP address which belongs to the subnet.

I will definitely try it.

Thanks for your suggestion.
