IP multicat communication

Hi,

My server(10.194.35.16) has to communicate to my client(10.194.90.15) over multicat address 239.255.0.127 udp port 8192.I have enable ip multicat on all the interface on the path as below,

""ip multicast- routing"

on int

"ip pim spare-dense-mode"

There is no Firewall in the way but communication is failing by giving "socket error" on client.

Is any way I can trace or troubleshoot this issue?

Regards,

Re: IP multicat communication

could you send the topology diagram. If multicast runs on two paths then may be the RPF could fail. But first need to check the design. Please post it.

there is active and passive switches on the way, can I check the RFP?

Re: IP multicat communication

Hello Mohammed,

this is from the switch that is connected to the source.

RPF type: unicast (connected)

You should check using the same command on the other devices those near the receiver.

In this way you can detect if there is an RPF issue caused by the topology.

Hope to help
