PIM on Sonicwall nsa 3500

I am trying to configure NSA 3500 for PIM SM for the first time. Apart from being able to create a Service (that can be used for building access rules), I don't see the option to actually configure any of the PIM options (at least the RP address).

Is NSA 3500 able to act as a Designated Router at all? If yes how do I get it talk to other PIM routers on the network?

Thank you in advance

Your sonicwall can't act as a PIM router - what you'll have to do is designate one of your computers to do this, then arrange for the Sonicwall to permit the necessary access to that computer from the WAN. This means both setting  a PERMIT access rule *and* creating a NAT mapping.

The "Public server wizards" will actually do both of these for you if you have once created the "service" necessary.

Does that mean that I would need Windows equivalent of pimd daemon installed? Any idea Windows PIM software that would do the job?
