A router does not forward multicast packets due to TTL setting of source
When a router forwards a multicast packet from one interface to another, it decrements the Time To Live (TTL) value in the IP header by one. It sends the packet only if the resulting TTL value is not zero and is greater than the multicast TTL threshold value of the outgoing interface when configured. If a multicast application on the source allows the setting of a TTL value and results in not matching the mentioned criteria, the packets are dropped by the router.
