Need help with multicast routing

Post by » Fri, 14 Jan 2005 15:05:20


Where can I find resources to do multicast routing in linux? I want to
setup a multicast router in my office to stream local content.

The documents seem to be out-dated and my recent experiments with
mrouted on kernel 2.4.26 and iperf for testing failed miserably.

Has anyone succesfully used linux as multicast router? If so, how?

1. multicast routing advice needed..

Hi all.

I am reposting my question.

I want to setup multicast routing server with 2 ethernet cards.

One interface(e.g. eth0) can only receive packets and connected subnet
A. And the other interface(e.g. eth1) is normal one that connected to
local subnet B.

What I want to do is when a PC in the subnet B joins the multicast
my linux machine receive multicast packets from eth0 and route it to the

PC via interface eth1.

I have tried it with 'mrouted', but I don't know how to confgiure it.
Is it possible with 'mrouted' ?

If anyone has an idea about it, please help me.
