IPv6 Source Specific Multicast Mapping

IPv6 Source Specific Multicast Mapping

Source-specific multicast (SSM) SSM mapping for IPv6 supports both static and dynamic Domain Name System (DNS) mapping for MLD version 1 receivers. This feature allows deployment of IPv6 SSM with hosts that are incapable of providing MLD version 2 support in their TCP/IP host stack and their IP multicast receiving application.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release.

Information About IPv6 Source Specific Multicast Mapping

SSM mapping for IPv6 supports both static and dynamic Domain Name System (DNS) mapping for MLD version 1 receivers. This feature allows deployment of IPv6 SSM with hosts that are incapable of providing MLD version 2 support in their TCP/IP host stack and their IP multicast receiving application.

SSM mapping allows the device to look up the source of a multicast MLD version 1 report either in the running configuration of the device or from a DNS server. The device can then initiate an (S, G) join toward the source.

How to Configure IPv6 Source Specific Multicast Mapping

Configuring IPv6 SSM

When the SSM mapping feature is enabled, DNS-based SSM mapping is automatically enabled, which means that the device will look up the source of a multicast MLD version 1 report from a DNS server.

You can configure either DNS-based or static SSM mapping, depending on your device configuration. If you choose to use static SSM mapping, you can configure multiple static SSM mappings. If multiple static SSM mappings are configured, the source addresses of all matching access lists will be used.

Before You Begin

Note


To use DNS-based SSM mapping, the device needs to find at least one correctly configured DNS server to which the device can be directly attached.


SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map enable

    4.    no ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map query dns

    5.    ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map static access-list source-address

    6.    end

    7.    show ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map [source-address]


DETAILED STEPS
    Step 1   enable


    Example:
    Device> enable 

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
    Step 2   configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal 

    Enters global configuration mode.

    Step 3   ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map enable


    Example:
    Device(config)# ipv6 mld ssm-map enable

    Enables the SSM mapping feature for groups in the configured SSM range.

    Step 4   no ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map query dns


    Example:
    Device(config)# no ipv6 mld ssm-map query dns

    Disables DNS-based SSM mapping.

    Step 5   ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map static access-list source-address


    Example:
    Device(config)# ipv6 mld ssm-map static SSM_MAP_ACL_2 2001:DB8:1::1

    Configures static SSM mappings.

    Step 6   end


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# end

    Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

    Step 7   show ipv6 mld [vrf vrf-name] ssm-map [source-address]


    Example:
    Device# show ipv6 mld ssm-map 

    Displays SSM mapping information.


    Configuration Examples for IPv6 Source Specific Multicast Mapping

    Example: IPv6 SSM Mapping

    Device# show ipv6 mld ssm-map 2001:DB8::1
    
     Group address  : 2001:DB8::1
     Group mode ssm : TRUE
     Database       : STATIC
     Source list    : 2001:DB8::2
                      2001:DB8::3
    
    Device# show ipv6 mld ssm-map 2001:DB8::2
    
     Group address  : 2001:DB8::2
     Group mode ssm : TRUE
     Database       : DNS
     Source list    : 2001:DB8::3
                      2001:DB8::1
