IP Multicast in a Wireless LAN
IP Multicast WLAN Configuration
Following is the configuration for ROUTER.
interface FastEthernet 0/1 description Local LAN in Remote Site ip address 10.1.101.1 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-mode ip multicast boundary IPMC-BRIDGE
Enables PIM on the interface. Boundary refers to named ACL “IPMC-BRIDGE.”
ip access-list standard IPMC-BRIDGE permit 220.127.116.11
Permits low-rate stream (18.104.22.168).
Verification and Testing
To ensure that the multicast boundary feature is working properly, use the following commands: show ip mroute active debug ip igmp 22.214.171.124 debug ip igmp 126.96.36.199
The following examples show how to test the controls that have been implemented. In these examples, the PC joins the 188.8.131.52 (low-rate IP/TV stream); the wireless clients and P2P WLAN should be able to access the stream. Then the PC attempts to join the disallowed group 184.108.40.206 (high-rate IP/TV stream); no IGMP joins and no multicast traffic for that group should be allowed.
A deny and log clause have been added to the access lists to show basic permit and deny messages.
ip access-list standard acl
Test 1: WLAN with AP
To test the WLAN with AP deployment, do the following:
Ensure that there are no active multicast streams.
L3-SWITCH#show ip mroute active Active IP Multicast Sources - sending >= 4 kbps L3-SWITCH#
On the PC, open the IP/TV viewer and request the program associated with the 220.127.116.11 group.
The following ACL console message should appear on L3-SWITCH showing that the traffic was permitted (number of packets may vary):
5w1d: %SEC-6-IPACCESSLOGS: list IPMC-WLAN permitted 18.104.22.168 7 packets
Issue the show ip mroute active command on L3-SWITCH to see the active multicast stream. The result is an active multicast stream for group 22.214.171.124 being sourced from the IP/TV server 10.5.10.22 with a rate of 100 kbps.
