    Configuring MLD Group Outgoing Interface Mapping

    You can configure an MLD protocol interface to use a different OIF for multicast-data-forwarding by applying an OIF map. When you configure an OIF map on an MLD protocol interface, the map is applied to all MLD membership requests that the interface receives. To configure OIF mapping on an interface, you first create the OIF map using the ipv6 mld oif-map command and then apply that map to an interface with the ipv6 mld apply-oif-map command.

    To properly configure an interface used in the OIF map for multicast-data-forwarding capability, you must configure the interface version as passive with the ipv6 mld version command. You can either specify a passive interface as the OIF or specify the OIF as self (to use the MLD protocol interface as the OIF) in the ipv6 mld oif-map command.

    To configure group outgoing interface mapping:

    1. Create an OIF map.
      host1(config)#ipv6 mld oif-map OIFMAP atm 3/0.1 ff0e::1:1/128 2001::1:1/128 host1(config)#ipv6 mld oif-map OIFMAP atm 3/0.2 ff0e::1:1/128 2001::1:1/128 host1(config)#ipv6 mld oif-map OIFMAP atm 3/0.3 ff0e::1:1/128 host1(config)#ipv6 mld oif-map OIFMAP atm 3/0.4 ff0e::1:0/112 2001::1:1/128 host1(config)#ipv6 mld oif-map OIFMAP atm 3/0.5 ff0e::1:0/112 2001::1:1/128 host1(config)#ipv6 mld oif-map OIFMAP self ::/0 2001::1:0/112

      Use the no version to remove an outgoing interface map attribute.

      Note: As an alternative method, you can create the OIF map using the MLD-OIF-Map-Name RADIUS attribute (VSA 26-76) in RADIUS Access-Accept messages. The radius ignore command is used to ignore or accept RADIUS attributes from Access-Accept messages.

    2. Apply the created OIF map to the current interface.
      host1(config-subif)#ipv6 mld apply-oif-map OIFMAP

      Use the no version to remove the outgoing interface map association from the interface.

    3. Configure the MLD version for the interface as passive with only multicast-data-forwarding capability.
      host1:dallas(config-if)#ipv6 mld version passive

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

      Note: As an alternative method, you can configure the MLD version using the MLD-Version RADIUS attribute (VSA 26-77) in RADIUS Access-Accept messages. The radius ignore command is used to ignore or accept RADIUS attributes from Access-Accept messages.
