You need to set up a continuous communication route between receivers and sender(s). If recipient, sender and/or RP router are not within the same network segment, you will need to create a route to enable communication between them.
To create a PIM-SM route, do the following:
On the Routes tab, click New PIM-SM Route.
The dialog box Add PIM-SM Route opens.
Make the following settings:
Route type: The following route types are available:
- Interface route: Packets are sent out on a particular interface. This is useful in two cases. First, for routing on dynamic interfaces (PPPPoint-to-Point Protocol), because in this case the IP address of the gateway is unknown. Second, for defining a default route having a gateway located outside the directly connected networks.
- Gateway route: Packets are sent to a particular host (gateway).
Network: Select the destination address range where the PIM traffic is to be routed to.
Gateway: Select the gateway/router to which the gateway will forward data packets (only available if you selected Gateway Route as route type).
Interface: Select the interface to which the gateway will forward data packets (only available if you selected Interface Route as route type).
Comment (optional): Add a description or other information.
The new PIM-SM route is added to the routes list.
To either edit or delete a PIM-SM route, click the corresponding buttons.
