Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6 for EX Series switches.

Description

Configure at least one, but not more than two, upstream interfaces on the rendezvous point (RP) routing device that resides between a customer edge–facing Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) domain and a core-facing PIM domain. The RP routing device translates PIM join or prune messages into corresponding IGMP report or leave messages (if you include the pim-to-igmp-proxy statement), or into corresponding MLD report or leave messages (if you include the pim-to-mld-proxy statement). The routing device then proxies the IGMP or MLD report or leave messages to one or both upstream interfaces to forward IPv4 multicast traffic (for IGMP) or IPv6 multicast traffic (for MLD) across the PIM domains.

Options

interface-names—Names of one or two upstream interfaces to which the RP routing device proxies IGMP or MLD report or leave messages for transmission of multicast traffic across PIM domains. You can specify a maximum of two upstream interfaces on the RP routing device. To configure a set of two upstream interfaces, specify the full interface names, including all physical and logical address components, within square brackets ( [ ] ). For details about specifying interfaces, see the JUNOS Network Interfaces Configuration Guide.
