5.1 Multicast RP assignment
The task asks us to :
Configure R3 as the RP for the following multicast groups:
126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206 - 255.26.255.255
220.127.116.11 - 255.42.255.255
18.104.22.168 - 255.58.255.255
Dont have any issues with this task but I did want to confirm something:
When using Auto RP and BSR with an ACL the code will convert wildcard masks into prefix-lengths therefore it would not be possible to use a single acl to summerise the above address ranges.
The solution is used static RP assignment, so I would like to confirm STATIC RP's assignments act different and it does NOT convert wildcard masks into prefix, therefore allowing us to perform the summerisation into 1 ACL entry : 22.214.171.124 0.48.255.255.
