debug auto-rp messages

Hi,

 

I have the following configuration on the router

ip pim send-rp-announce Loopback0 scope 5 group-list 1 interval 30

access-list 1 permit 238.0.0.0 0.255.255.255

access-list 1 deny   any

 

On enabling debug,i am seeing the following messages

PIM Auto-RP debugging is on

R3#

*Mar  1 04:58:04.462: Auto-RP(0): Build RP-Announce for 1.1.1.3, PIMv2/v1, ttl 5, ht 91

*Mar  1 04:58:04.466: Auto-RP(0):  Build announce entry for (238.0.0.0/8)

*Mar  1 04:58:04.470: Auto-RP(0):  Build announce entry for (-)(224.0.0.0/4)

*Mar  1 04:58:04.470: Auto-RP(0): Send RP-Announce packet on Serial0/0.32

*Mar  1 04:58:04.478: Auto-RP: Send RP-Announce packet on Loopback0


Can someone explain me why i am seeing that message in bold and italic.

    Hi rsie2015,

    The negative means that it is dense mode (vs sparse).   It represents the explicit deny in your acl.   

    Try removing that line, and then look at the output.



    Auto-RP(0):  Build announce entry for (238.0.0.0/8)


    Auto-RP(0):  Build announce entry for (-)(224.0.0.0/4)



    access-list 1 permit 238.0.0.0 0.255.255.255


    access-list 1 deny   any

  • Thanks a lot for the clarification.It worked as you said.
