Multicasting + VMware = Possible?

Hello all (and Stephen who I just talk on the phone with [Army Guy])

I have a questing reguarding routing protocols and VMware ESX Server.

Ripv2, OSPF, BGP protocols probably will not work between Vyatta and a physical router. Ripv1 worked slightly because it uses a broadcast not multicast transmission. The other protocols require multicasting capability which is not compiled into the Linux kernel by default. I discovered the same problem while attempting to interface GNS3(on windows) to a real Cisco router.

I'm using the VC3 Virtual Image provided from your download center and I'm unable to get these protocols to to talk to eachother.

Now, do I have to install a multicasting daemon on my ESX server since linux OS doesn't support multicasting?

I've ran a sniffer inbetween my two agents (ESX Server running VC3 and my 7206 router) and I see the Hello Packets from the Cisco Router but not from my VC3.

Any and all help Thanks in advance.

Both the Linux OS and VC3 should support multicast as an experimental
option, but you've got to enable it. Under configuration, try

set interfaces ethernet address multicast-capable

Best,
Justin

Just to test my theory out I reset the Vyatta router and rebuilt my configuration and I could see the RIP protocol, testing OSPF now.

Re: Multicasting + VMware = Possible?

Hi jfletcher

I'm not using VMware or any other virtualization.
I'm working with LiveCD and I have tried the command

set interfaces ethernet address multicast-capable

in VC4 but it didin't worked out.

Is there multicast routing, IGMP, and PIM protocols already implemented?

I'm a new user. What should I do?

Thanks in advance. :-)

Multicast isn't supported VC4; if you want to experiment with multicast,
you'll need to try VC3.
