    Enabling MLD on an Interface

    You must start MLD on each interface that you want to use the protocol. You can configure MLD and PIM on the same interface. If you configure only MLD on an interface, the router determines that MLD owns that interface. If you configure MLD and PIM on an interface, the router determines that PIM owns the interface.

    In an MLDv1 or MLDv2 network, the querier is the router with the lowest IPv6 address.

    Note: You can configure MLD only on IPv6 interfaces. For information about configuring IPv6 interfaces, see Configuring IPv6 in the JunosE IP, IPv6, and IGP Configuration Guide.

    To start MLD and set the MLD version on the interface, complete the following steps:

    1. Enable MLD on the interface (MLDv2 is the default version).
      host1:boston(config-if)#ipv6 mld

      Use the no version to disable MLD on an interface.

    2. (MLDv1) Specify the MLD version for the interface.
      host1:boston(config-if)#ipv6 mld version 1

      Use the no version to set the version to the default, MLDv2.
