DVMRP Report Filter Overview

You can configure an interface to accept only reports with routes that appear on a standard IP access list. You can refine the set of accepted routes further, by defining a second access list of neighbors who can supply the specified routes.

For example, suppose you define an access list that specifies that the router accepts only reports for the route 172.16.2.0/24. You then define a second access list that specifies that only neighbors 192.168.1.1 and 193.168.1.1 can supply this route. If neighbor 192.168.2.2 supplies the route, the DVMRP router rejects this report.

You can also modify the value (distance) that the router associates with a DVMRP route when it computes the RPF interface for the source of a multicast packet. By default, the router associates a distance of 0 with DVMRP routes; this value specifies that the router use DVMRP, rather than a unicast routing protocol, to transport multicast datagrams.

However, in a configuration where PIM discovers multicast routes and a unicast routing protocol performs RPF lookups, you can increase the administrative distance to favor the unicast protocol.

For information about defining access lists, see Configuring Routing Policy in the JunosE IP Services Configuration Guide.
