Cisco IP Multicast

Hi i need help configure a cisco switch WS-C3750G to allow one application to send multicast packet inter-vlan

Presently the software im using is set to "IP - Multicast" to transmit data.  I only see clients that are on the same vlan as me

What i would like to do is allow only my workstation that is on vlan 10 (192.168.10.xx) to use multicast to find clients in vlan 80 (192.168.80.xx)

Can someone help me do this please im not really sure what to do....ive read this document ( but im not sure if it's ok

Thanks for your help !

Ah, you are running IP Base:

From Cisco:

To use the IP multicast routing features, the stack master must be running the IP services image (formerly known as the enhanced multilayer image [EMI]).

It sounds more like you wanna configure multicast routing in your 3750. Have a look at the following link instead:

Try this:

configure terminal
  interface vlan10
    ip pim sparse-dense-mode
  interface vlan80
    ip pim sparse-dense-mode

Open in new window

It dont work this command on my switch

HV_CORE_1(config)#interface vlan 10
HV_CORE_1(config-if)#ip pi
HV_CORE_1(config-if)#ip pim sp
HV_CORE_1(config-if)#ip pim spa
HV_CORE_1(config-if)#ip pim sparse-dense-mode
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Can you please paste a "show version" output?
Also try to add this first:


HV_CORE_1(config)# ip multicast-routing distributed 

Open in new window


HV_CORE_1(config)# ip multicast-routing

Open in new window

Then add the ip pim commands above

Ok do i need to put all my switch with IP Services image or just this one ?
Only the switches with the "interface Vlans" that need the ip pim commands (the ones doing the routing), presumably just this one. The 'switching' switches can be left alone.

Ok...ill have to check if i can upgrade the firmware first and when i can do it....
