Can I work with IPv6 multicast in eNSP?

Latest reply: May 3, 2016 02:23:41 2604 6 0 0 0

Hi all, 

I am about to start the Master´s project that consists of broadcasting video streaming using IPv6 multicast. I will set one device as a  server and other devices will join to a multicast group to receive the data. Do you know if there are some restrictions to perform it in eNSP? I have not been able to find too much information on the internet.



Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Javier

Hi again,

Any idea? Does anyone work with IPv6 multicast before?




Thanks.

Regards,

Javier

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

However, I have found on the internet the following information (Huawei´s documentation):

"On IPv6 networks, after Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) is configured on receiver hosts and the multicast router to which the hosts are directly connected, the hosts can dynamically join related multicast groups, and the multicast router can manage members on the local  network.

MLDv1 is defined in RFC 2710 and MLDv2 is defined in RFC 3810. Both MLD versions  support the Any-Source Multicast (ASM) model. MLDv2 supports the Source-Specific Multicast (SSM) model, whereas MLDv1 supports the SSM model only with the help of SSM
mapping.

MLD functions the same as the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) for IPv6. Implementation of MLD and is similar to that of  IGMP. For example, MLDv1 is similar to IGMPv2, and MLDv2 is similar to IGMPv3. Features unique to MLD include the principles
of MLDv1 and MLDv2, MLD querier election mechanism, and MLD group compatibility."


It seems we can work with MLD protocol instead of IGMP for IPv6. What´s your opinion? Would it be possible to implement a multicast topology on eNSP using MLD?

PS: please see attached the document for further information.



Thanks and regards,

Javier

Hi,

IPv6 multicast is supported in the real machine,but the simulator does not support.

Sorry for the inconvenion caused to you.

Hi all,

Sorry for insisiting on this matter...

I have a temporary solution to implement IPv6 multicast. Someone from UK is borrowing me a physical Lab. Do you have any idea how to generate IPv6 multicast traffic on a host? I have 4 routers and 2 switches, but not end devices, like a computer or something like that. I will not able to use VLC to send video. According to my tutor, It is enough to make a "display" to show IPv6 multicast traffic is running properly but it would be great to generate a kind of multicast traffic (ICMP, for example) to prove it.

On the other hand (too many questions), as I will only have access to that particular Lab for one week, I have been thinking of creating IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels on eNSP.  Could it be possible? I mean, as our colleague said in the previous comments, eNSP does not support IPv6 multicast...but...do you think can we get something using IPv6 over IPv4 tunnels?




Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Javier

Hi,

Sorry, the simulator can not achieve IPv6 multicast,but the router support IPv6 over IPv4.
