Vyatta Network OS Documentation

Learn how to install, configure and operate the Vyatta NOS, which helps drive our virtual networking & physical platforms portfolio.

Configure R1

The multicast network in the example extends from R1 through the 192.0.2.0/24 LAN segment to R2 and RP. In this example, you configure R1 for PIM sparse mode multicast operation.

Creating a PIM sparse mode configuration on R1 creates a PIM sparse mode multicast configuration on R1.

Table 1. Creating a PIM sparse mode configuration on R1

Step

Command

Configure PIM sparse mode on dp0p1p1.

vyatta@R1# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 ip pim mode sparse

Commit the configuration.

vyatta@R1# commit

View the configuration.

vyatta@R1# show interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 ip
    pim {
        mode sparse
    }

Configure PIM sparse mode on dp0p1p2.

vyatta@R1# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p2 ip pim mode sparse

Commit the configuration.

vyatta@R1# commit

View the configuration.

vyatta@R1# show interfaces dataplane dp0p1p2 ip
 pim {
 mode sparse
 }

Configure multicast routing.

vyatta@R1# set protocols multicast ip routing

Specify the location of the rendezvous point router.

vyatta@R1# set protocols pim rp-address 192.0.2.99

Commit the configuration.

vyatta@R1# commit

View the configuration.

vyatta@R1# show protocols
    multicast {
        ip {
            routing {
            }
        }
    }
    pim {
        rp-address 192.0.2.99 {
        }
    }
