Re: ME3600X sends Multicast-Copies out of same Interface
[In reply to]
Below is the reply from the development team. Can you please send me the requested information?
" This is expected behavior.
When the Multicast packet comes it is sent on all the interface which are interested, Here the loopback interface is also interested. When the packet hits the loopback it comes back to the router and the router forwards again.
So all other interface will see the packets twice if the loopback has igmp join.
Can you please send me the following details
1) Configuration on the Loopback.
2) Reason why the customer has a igmp join on the Loopback?
3) How is the customer sending igmp join from Loopback"
