multicast over FR

Hi

I like to configure sparse-dense mode ( when RP is failed, let dense mode work) over FR hub and stroke(no subinterface allowed).

Problem : FR is not available multicast nature, how can i fix this problem?

thanks

Re: multicast over FR

Issue the ip multicast-routing command globally on the router. Enable PIM sparse or dense mode, by issuing the ip pim sparse-dense-mode command on all the multicast interfaces. In the case of sparse mode, a Rendezvous Point (RP) is to be configured. These are options to configure the RP in PIM sparse mode multicast networks:

Configure a static RP address by issuing the ip pim rp-address command. This method is not scalable, and is recommended only in very small, simple networks.

Auto-RP utilizes the sparse-dense mode, which allows a group to be treated in sparse mode if an RP is known. If an RP is not known, then the group defaults to dense mode. RP information is conveyed to the routers by the Auto-RP mechanism, which uses two well known groups: 224.0.1.39 and 224.0.1.40. The advantage of this is that any change to the RP designation needs to be configured only on the RP routers, and not on the leaf routers, as in the static configuration.

Hello,

in addition to Brian's post, you also might want to have a look at this document:
