Hi, I have a Catalyst 4006 with Supervisor Engine II. I would like to know if it is possible to enable multicast routing via CGMP or IGMP. I know it is possible with the Supervisor Engine III. Any advice would be appreciated.

I suppose I should qualify this more by saying that I need to know if this switch will support IGMP or CGMP with Pim Sparse or Dense mode.

Not sure on the software ver required but the hardware itself does not look to support PIM

Catalyst 4000 with Sup II
 PIMRouting N
 IGMPSnooping Y
 CGMP Y
 GMRP Y
 RGMP N

Sorry!

I came to the same conclusion.  The way I came to the conclusion was checking the Ciso web site for how to configure IGMP  or CGMP with PIM and the first 4000 document detailing how it is done specifically states it is done on the Supervisor III module.   This is the link:

Also, if you google '4006 igmp pim' the only results are for the Supervisor III.

rage419, was there a particular page that showed the features you mentioned?  I also did a google search, but the reason i think it may be possible is that the commands neccesary to enable Pim and IGMP are available on the router.  I was hoping to find someone with specific experience.  Anyway, thanks for the effort.

If you look at this document: http://www.cisco.com/global/AT/veranstaltungen_seminare/downloads/files/C4K-Update.pdf it details exactly what features are available/different between the Supervisor II and the Supervisor III.

Ok, so it turns out I have the WS-X4013 SupII with a WS-X4232-L3 Layer 3 Routing Module.  Which is why I have the ability to turn on multicast-routing.  Whether or not it will work has yet to be seen.  I will post back here with the results.
