Multicast on 2900

Can the HP 2900 forward Multicast traffic between VLAN's? We are using a 2900 as our core router and want to know if we can do multicast between our VLAN's

Thanks,
Matt

Hello,

This is not exactly an HP-UX related question,
but anyway...

I believe it can.

Did you read this document?

Re: Multicast on 2900

Matt,

To route Multicast traffic between VLANs requires PIM Dense or PIM Sparse mode.

The HP 2900 supports layer 2 IGMP multicast snooping, but not PIM routing.

You need a 5400 or 3500 switch with the premium license:
