Multicast



  • Hello everybody,

    I'm using pFsense 2.0.1 on an AMD 64 based pc. There I have 4 Nic, one for wan, one for lan, one for wlan and another one for testing. So this is what I tried to do:

    1. Using VLC I started a multicast streaming using 223.0.0.1:1234 port with TTL 10 on my LAN which is 192.168.2.0/24.

    2. I configured the SWITCH Cisco 2950 to allow multicast on every vlan (I just have 3 vlans: the lan, the wlan and the testing one). So after that I can receive the streaming on any PC connected to the LAN.

    3. I configured pFsense IGMP proxy to use the LAN network as an upstream side allowing 0.0.0.0/1 network to stream and setted thershold to 10. Then I added the downstream side with thershold setted to ten and address setted to my testing one: 192.168.3.0/24. Also I add a rule on testing lan's firewall to allow any traffic to pass to the network using an advance option that allow packets with IP options to pass.

    4. I connected my laptop to the testing network and used VLC to receive the streaming. I pointed it to udp://@230.0.0.1:1234 but nothing happened.

    Then my question would be what should I do in order to pass the multicast streaming from one network to another.

    Thank you on advance :D

    BTW; I'm from Peru so my English may be not so good. Sorry about that, it will get better :D.

    Why such an old version?
