PIM Join Packet - Encoded-Joined Source Address

Guys,

Having a mad day, please could someone exactly explain what the Encoded-Joined Source Address-1 is (have marked the packet line with asterix's) and have included the RFC statement which is not making sense?

I know that the PIM join is sent with a ttl of 1 and that the router will look at the GDA in the join packet, determine where the RP is, add the IIF for the *,G, and then rebuild and send another pim join packet towards the RP (to the next hop router)

Frame 4 (72 bytes on wire, 72 bytes captured)

Arrival Time: Sep 10, 2002 01:30:45.363349000

Time delta from previous packet: 0.000004000 seconds

Time relative to first packet: 1.774545000 seconds

This list contains the sources that the sending router will forward multicast datagrams for if received on the interface this message is sent on.

Many thx indeed,

Re: PIM Join Packet - Encoded-Joined Source Address

Hello,

I believe that this join is creating an S,G entry, probably since the receiver's local router has determined that the traffic has exceeded the shortest path tree threshold,
