pimd Not Working for one VLAN



  • I have installed pimd as I have a DLNA Server on another network from my other computers. After installing pimd I configured it, but had issues getting it to start as it said one of my VLANs I setup was not valid. It has sense stopped telling me that and the service will start, but the VLAN that said was invalid is one of the VLANs I want to use to access the DLNA server. It is listed in the config, but the status page does not show it in the Virtual Interface Table.

    Raw Config from SSH:

    phyint igb1.10 enable
    phyint igb1.20 enable
    phyint igb1.13 enable
    bsr-candidate priority 5
    rp-candidate priority 5 time 30
    

    Interface Info:

    igb1.10 192.168.10.254/24
    igb1.20 192.168.20.254/24
    igb1.13 192.168.13.254/27

    WAN IP is censored. Item 4 is actually incorrect (should be .254, not .1), but that is how it appears in the Status page of the pfSense GUI.

    All of the settings for the Interface is the same a the default LAN (aside from the different IP and Subnets).

    Any thoughts on why it seems to have issues with this one VLAN?



  • I guess no one has any thoughts on why I am missing a VLAN in PIND? If I could access my DLNA Server without having to do IGMP or an auto discover, then I would. Sadly the software I am trying to use only allows for Auto Discover and no manual enter (same with everything other piece of software I found).

    I tried using IGMP Proxy, but I couldn't make that work either (I saw some posts that say it was bugged).
