  • 1.  multicast group - any way to change it?

    Posted 07-18-2022 20:05

    per my understanding multicast group cannot be changed on Juniper and I see this group on EX4300 , but Lightspeed agent network saying:


    • UDP – lsrelayd service
    • UDP – lsfilterd service

    I think they tested with Cisco switches which use the above multicast group. Is there any way to change it to on Juniper?

    Thank you

    The details will vary depending on the overall multicast configuration but typically you set the desired group range as part of the RP configuration.

    [edit routing-instances VPN-A protocols pim rp local]
    user@host# set group-ranges ff70::/12
    user@host# set group-ranges​
    The check list of all the multicast choices and required end to end configuration, including optional steps, can be found here.

    Remember that whatever happens, is NOT a routable multicast.
    This special /24 is «link local multicast», that is, purely local broadcast using multicast address range as destination/group IP.
    Not routable anyway, purely local to the LAN (well, such beasts can be specifically proxified, but this is not routing and it would be application proxification).
