Multicast routing between LAN and OPT1



  • Is it possible in pfsense 1.2.2 to route multicast udp/igmp traffic between the internal LAN and OPT1 interfaces?  I have my Wireless connected to OPT1 and I'd like a client app on the wireless to communicate with my server on my LAN on a multicast IP.  I opened up everything as a test on my firewall, and normal routing works.  But not multicast.  I found an old post on multicast routing (2006) and it seemed like pfsense did not support it back then.  Has that changed since?  Remember I do not want to route multicast traffic over my WAN link - only the two internal subnets.

    192.168.1.x is Wireless (OPT1)
    192.168.0.x is LAN (LAN)

    192.168.1.20:~ $ ping 224.1.9.1
    PING 224.1.9.1 (224.1.9.1): 56 data bytes
    ^C
    –- 224.1.9.1 ping statistics ---

    192.168.0.15 tmp $ ping 224.1.9.1

    and

    192.168.1.20:~ $ ping 192.168.0.72
    PING 192.168.0.72 (192.168.0.72): 56 data bytes

    Any comments?
