Basic PIM-SM multicast configuration
This section presents a configuration example that provides PIM sparse mode multicast capability between the sender of multicast traffic (Source) and a receiver of multicast traffic (Receiver). Three routers are configured for this example: R1, R2 and RP.
R1 and R2 are configured for PIM sparse mode operation and point to RP as the rendezvous point router. RP is configured as the rendezvous point router.
When you have finished the example, these systems will be configured as shown in the following figure.
