Example: Configuring Multicast Static Routes (NSM Procedure)

You can configure multiple Outgoing Information settings for a single static multicast route.

In this example, you configure a static multicast route from a source with IP address 20.20.20.200 to the multicast group 238.1.1.1. You configure the security device to translate the multicast group from 238.1.1.1 to 238.2.2.1 on the outgoing interface.

To configure a multicast static route:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices. Double-click the device object to open the device configuration.
  2. In the device navigation tree, select Network >Virtual Router to display the list of configured virtual routers. Double-click the virtual router in which you are configuring a static multicast routing entry. The Virtual Router configuration screen appears.
  3. In the virtual router navigation tree, select Multicast Routing Table. Configure the multicast routing preferences:
    • Select Enable Multiple Incoming Interfaces.
    • Select the Negative Mroute Cache. Leave the default Timer setting of 4096.
  4. In the Multicast Static Routes area, click the Add icon. The New Mgroup dialog box appears. Configure the new routing entry:
    • For Multicast Group IP, enter 238.1.1.1.
    • For Source IP, enter 20.20.20.200.
    • For Incoming Interface, select ethernet1.
  5. Configure an Outgoing Information setting:
    • Click the Add icon. The New Outgoing Information dialog box appears.
    • For outgoing interface, select ethernet3.
    • For Outgoing Group, enter the IP address 238.2.2.1.
  6. Click OK to add the Outgoing Information setting to the static route settings. Repeat step 5 to add more Outgoing Information settings.
  7. Click OK to save your changes to the virtual router, and then click OK again to save your changes to the device.
