static (Protocols MLD)


Hierarchy Level


Test multicast forwarding on an interface.

The static statement simulates MLD joins on a routing device statically on an interface without any MLD hosts. It is supported for both MLDv1 and MLDv2 joins. This statement is especially useful for testing multicast forwarding on an interface without a receiver host.


To prevent joining too many groups accidentally, the static statement is not supported with the interface all statement.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
