Which Huawei switches support static multicast router ports

29

Currently, all the switches support static router interfaces.

After Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping is enabled on a switch, the switch forwards IGMP Report messages to an upstream multicast router only through the router port. A router port is dynamically learned by the switch after the interface receives a General Query message or PIM Hello message from the upstream multicast router. If the multicast router cannot send IGMP General Query messages, the router port must be statically configured.

Does an S series switch support the multicast static route port
The switch enabled with IGMP snooping forwards multicast packets to the multicast router only through the router port after receiving IGMP Report messages. The router port is dynamically learned by the switch after the interface receives a General Query message or a PIM Hello packet from the multicast router. If the multicast router cannot send IGMP General Query messages, the router port must be statically configured. S series excluding the S1700 and E series switches support the static router port. You can use the igmp-snooping static-router-port command in the interface view.

Which multicast protocols do Huawei AR series enterprise routers support
In versions earlier than V200R005C00, the Huawei AR Series Enterprise Routers support the following multicast protocols: -Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) -Protocol independent multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM) -Protocol independent multicast dense mode (PIM-DM) -Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) -IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping NOTE: AR150&AR200 series routers and AR1200 series routers do not support IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping. In V200R005C00 and later versions, the Huawei AR Series Enterprise Routers support the following multicast protocols: -Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) -Protocol independent multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM) -Protocol independent multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM) for IPv6 -Protocol independent multicast dense mode (PIM-DM) -Protocol independent multicast dense mode (PIM-DM) for IPv6 -Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) -Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) -IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping NOTE: AR120&AR150&AR160&AR200&AR500 series routers, AR510 series routers and AR1200 series routers do not support IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping.

Which multicast protocols do AR series routers support
In earlier versions of V200R005C00, Huawei AR series routers support the following multicast protocols: - MSDP - PIM-SM - PIM-DM - IGMP - IGMP snooping and MLD snooping Note: AR150&AR200 series routers and AR1200 series routers do not support IGMP snooping or MLD snooping. In V200R005C00 and later versions, Huawei AR series routers support the following multicast protocols: MSDP - PIM-SM - PIM-SM (IPv6) - PIM-DM - PIM-DM (IPv6) - IGMP - MLD - IGMP snooping and MLD snooping Note: AR150&AR200 series routers and AR1200 series routers do not support IGMP snooping or MLD snooping.

Do S series switches support static multicast routes
For S series switches, static multicast routes are supported only by S series modular switches, S3700EI, S3700HI, S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI. You can run the igmp static-group command to configure a static multicast group, and the ip rpf-route-static command to configure a static multicast route.

Do S series switches support static multicast MAC addresses
S series switches (except the S1700) support static multicast MAC addresses in V100R006 and later versions. However, the support for this function varies depending on switch models. - S2700SI/S2700EI: not supported - S3700SI/S3700EI: not supported - S5710-C-LI: not supported - S5700SI: supported in V200R003 and later versions
