pimd Multicast routing with Airtame



  • I have a setup where multiple TV's (with Airtame devices) are connected to a VLAN. Users should be able to connect to these devices via AirPlay and similar services. Therefore the devices have to discover each other via multicast.
    The client devices are located in there own VLANs. It looks like this:

    I've tried to configure the new PIMD package (V 0.0.2) it lists the Airtame devices as expected. But the multicast traffic is not forwarded to the other clients. The pimd.conf looks like this:

    default-route-distance 101
    default-route-metric 1024
    igmp-querier-timeout 180
    phyint em2 enable
    phyint em3 enable
    phyint em1 enable
    rp-candidate em3
    	group-prefix 239.255.255.250
    	group-prefix 224.0.0.251
    rp-candidate em2
    	group-prefix 239.255.255.250
    	group-prefix 224.0.0.251
    rp-candidate em1
    	group-prefix 239.255.255.250
    	group-prefix 224.0.0.251
    rp-address 10.0.3.1 239.255.255.250
    rp-address 10.0.3.1 224.0.0.251
    rp-address 10.0.2.1 239.255.255.250
    rp-address 10.0.2.1 224.0.0.251
    rp-address 10.0.1.1 239.255.255.250
    rp-address 10.0.1.1 224.0.0.251
    

    As stated in the release notes, it may be possible to create invalid configurations with the GUI.
