Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6 for EX Series switches.

Description

Configure the rendezvous point (RP) routing device that resides between a customer edge–facing Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) domain and a core-facing PIM domain to translate PIM join or prune messages into corresponding Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) report or leave messages. The routing device then transmits the report or leave messages by proxying them to one or two upstream interfaces that you configure on the RP routing device. Including the pim-to-mld-proxy statement enables you to use MLD to forward IPv6 multicast traffic across the PIM sparse mode domains.

The remaining statement is explained separately.
