Can a multicast router be a RP and a receiver at same time?
This is a question about multicast. I´d like to know if a router configured to be a RP can also have receivers conencted to its interfaces, or the receivers should be at other routers? Also, even if it does not have receivers, being a RP, can I put one of its interfaces as a member of a group, using ip igmp static-group on one of the interfaces of the router? In reality, I´d like to send all the multicast traffic to only one router, that will send it to one of his interfaces, that will be transmitted by a satellite multicast system, so there will be no IGMP in the LAN. So, the idea is to configure ip igmp static-group in the LAN interface, and configure this router to be a RP, so everyone sends to him. There will be no Joins and Prunes, cause the RP and receiver are on the same router. Will it work?
