First: I am not that familiar with Linux, but i am able to compile a kernel.
Heres the problem
We are a training-center with 10 classrooms. the classrooms are prepared
with images and Norton Multicast Server /clients.
Before, we havent any trouble with that configuration. Now, i have to
seperate the net: each classroom one ip-subnet.
Because of that a tried to set up a linux router with dhcp-relay enabled. No
problem so far. Then, I tried to recompile the kernel for multicast and for
preperation of using mrouted, the multicast routing solution for Linux. I
used mrouted 3.9beta3. The Kernel is 2.2.14.
When i start a multicast-session, the client receives a proper IP-Adress
with dhcp, all parameters are correct. But the client cant connect with the
server.BTW, the Server is just 2 Hops away.
Starting mrouted -d, the mrouted finds his vifs0 and vifs1, sending
neighbor-request. When the multicast-client is up, the mrouted recognized it
as vif-multicast-member. shortly after that the kernel states an "warning:
setsockopt MRZ_ADD_MFC invalid argument error". what does that mean ?
is there anybody who managed to set up multicast routing with Norton Ghost ?
I tried the w2k, Nt and the netware Multicast-server, none of them worked.
any hints ?
