The nearest article to my question that I was able to find on EE is: "Cisco 861 ip multicast-routing command", but the question seemed to be left hanging. I have spent many fruitless hours trying to find an answer and hope the experts can give me some direction.
I have a client who needs to be able to send a UDP multicast over non-standard ports from a server device to receiving clients (see attached diagram). He has purchased a Cisco 861 for this project. When I run a sniffer, the server broadcast destination is port 255.255.255.255. When I connect the server and a workstation on the same VLAN, the devices work as desired, however that does not meet the clients objective. He wants to be able to isolate the server and each of the clients to its own subnet and control TCP via ACL.
Cisco documents reference a real world example of the trading floor, where data is sent to multiple workstations via multicast, but I could find no reference to the routers which were used.
Is it possible to meet the clients goals with this hardware? What is the best way to accomplish this (if it is capable)? Is there a better router for the desired results?
