You will need an IP-series platform with 2 free interfaces, and 2 LAB PCs. The Lab PCs should have VLC installed
You will also need a media file such as a video or music file, to stream for this lab test.
Here are the steps to lab this:
- In IPSO, configure the 2 interfaces with IP addresses and netmask
- In the PIM page under routing, set the protocol type to SSM
- Turn PIM on for the 2 interfaces you configured
- Set the Bootstrap candidate to On, with a local address of one of the interfaces you added to the IPSO box
- Set the Candidate-RP to on with the same info as #4
- For the Local RP-Set, add 188.8.131.52/4
- Open the IGMP page in Voyager and set the version to 3 for all of the active interfaces
- Save your changes and you are done the IPSO configuration
- On the Multicast sender PC, open VLC, and select File -> Wizard
- Select stream to network, and next
- Select the media file to stream, and next
- Select RTP Multicast and add a group address such as 184.108.40.206, and next
- Hit next again as you should not need to set the encoding type
- Set the TTL to 30 and select Finish
- On the Multicast receiver lab PC, open VLC
- Select File -> Open Network Stream
- Select UDP/RTP Multicast and set the address to email@example.com
- Select "Show more options" at the bottom, and strip out the leading rtp://@ so that it looks like rtp://firstname.lastname@example.org:1234
That should be all of the configurations needed to stream from one segment to another, with PIM-SSM on IPSO.
You can verify the instrumentation on IPSO under the PIM and IGMP pages from Voyager.
