Add Multicast Groups

  1. (Optional) It is recommended to delete all the demands in your network. This will make it easier to view the multicast demands that will be added later in this guide. To do this, select Network > Elements > Demands from the main menu. Select Delete > All Entries from the bottom toolbar.

  2. Select Network > Protocols > Multicast > Multicast Group from the main menu to bring up the Multicast Group tab on the Network Info table.

  3. Click Add from the bottom toolbar to bring up the Add Multicast Group window.

  4. Enter a Destination IP Address, Name, and Rendezvous Point address for the multicast group.

    In this example, (WDC) will be used as the RP. If RP Addresses are already defined on Nodes, then they will be populated in this drop-down box.

  5. Add the first six routers from the list of Available Routers to the Selected Routers list. For more information, see Viewing Demands Over GRE Tunnels.

  6. Click OK when all the properties of the multicast group are set correctly.

    This will add the multicast group to the network and will be displayed on the Multicast Group tab of the Network Info table.
