multicasting, mrouted ported to Linux?

Post by Mark Turn » Fri, 25 Aug 1995 04:00:00

I've recently started looking at multicast.  In the office things are
nice and easy because I'm using Solaris 2.4 which has full multicast
support.  At home I'm using Linux, which does support multicasting but
as far as I can tell does not have mrouted.  I've looked all over the
place for a Linux mrouted port but not found one, and failed dismally in
my attempts to do the port myself.

Can anyone point me towards a Linux mrouted port please, or anyone else
working in this area?

So far my only option seems to be to set up FreeBSD (sorry about using
such bad language in this group!) to run mrouted so I can set up a
tunnel between home and office.




1. Solaris 2.4 for x86 and Multicasting, need mrouted

Hi everyone,
        I have a copy of solaris 2.4 for x86 here and am investigating
setting it up to do multicast routing. While I am quite sure that it
can handle multicasting on the local subnet, I need to find an mrouted
program to enable multicast tunneling between it and other multicast
routers, using IGMP and DVMRP.

This being the case, the questions are:

1. does such a daemon come stock with 2.4? (I have not yet installed it)
2. if not, where can i get one, binary *and* source?
