Re: Connecting Switches over EoSDH WAN for multicast
Thank you for both tips.
I understand that trunking may the the *correct* way to connect these, but for various reasons, I'd like the port on the A-End to simply be seen as another 'PC' or 'Server' attached to the remote switch.
The idea is to have mulitcast receivers on the B-End sitting in the same VLAN as the WAN connection and simply make multicast requests to the IGMP broadcasts to subscribe to the feed.
Can you confirm if a:
"switchport mode access",
"Switchport access vlan X",
"ip pim sparse-mode" on the WAN port interfaces is all that is needed to enable the connection?
Am I simplifying things too much that I am not seeing I may run into problems later?
Would trunking be a better solution for this and why?
