    Configuring PIM Sparse Mode Remote Neighbors for IPv6

    You must use PIM sparse mode remote neighbors to run multicast services over BGP/MPLS VPNs.

    Note: Although you can configure PIM sparse mode remote neighbors, you cannot use these remote neighbors for BGP/MPLS VPNs.

    To configure a pair of E Series routers to act as PIM remote neighbors:

    1. On one router, specify the other router to be a remote neighbor, and identify the IP address of the interface on the other router that is used for the connection to this router.
      host1(config-router):boston#remote-neighbor 1001::1 sparse-mode
    2. Specify the location of the local interface whose address is used as the source address for the PIM connection to a remote neighbor.
      host1(config-router-rn):boston#update-source atm 2/1.108
    3. (Optional) Specify how often the router sends hello messages to the remote neighbor.
      host1(config-router-rn):boston#query-interval 40
    4. Repeat Steps 2 to 3 for the other router.

    Note: You can configure multicast on IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces. For information about configuring PIM on IPv4 interfaces, see Unresolved xref.
    For information about configuring IP interfaces, see Configuring IP in the JunosE IP, IPv6, and IGP Configuration Guide. For information about configuring IPv6 interfaces, see Configuring IPv6 in the JunosE IP, IPv6, and IGP Configuration Guide.
