protocols pim6 ssm default

Enables Source Specific Multicast (SSM) and uses a default range of IP multicast addresses.

set protocols pim6 ssm default
delete protocols pim6 ssm default
show protocols pim6 ssm default

Configuration mode


protocols {
    pim6 {
        ssm {
            default
        }
    }
}

Use this command to configure SSM and use the default range of IP multicast addresses (that is, FF3x::/32). Use protocols pim6 ssm range <acl6> to define the SSM range to be other than the default. When an SSM range of multicast addresses is defined, the no (*,G) or (S,G,rpt) state is initiated for groups in the SSM range. Messages corresponding to these states are neither accepted nor originated in the SSM range.

Use the set form of this command to enable SSM and use a default range of IP multicast addresses.

Use the delete form of this command to disable SSM.

Use the show form of this command to display SSM default configuration.
