PIM Dense-mode Lab
I was wondering if someone could explain to me why I am seeing so many PIM Neighbors on all of my routers in this lab topology.
Check out R4 for example
R4#sh ip pim neighbor
PIM Neighbor Table
Mode: B - Bidir Capable, DR - Designated Router, N - Default DR Priority,
S - State Refresh Capable
Neighbor Interface Uptime/Expires Ver DR
184.108.40.206 FastEthernet0/0 00:17:47/00:01:41 v2 1 / S
220.127.116.11 FastEthernet0/0 00:57:02/00:01:41 v2 1 / S
18.104.22.168 FastEthernet0/0 00:57:02/00:01:42 v2 1 / DR S
22.214.171.124 FastEthernet0/0 00:57:02/00:01:40 v2 1 / S
126.96.36.199 FastEthernet0/0 00:28:34/00:01:42 v2 1 / S
188.8.131.52 Serial0/0.1 00:18:11/00:01:17 v2 1 / S
Why are so many neighbors showoing up? I show only see R2 184.108.40.206 and R5 220.127.116.11 as neighbors since they are the only direct connections?
Any help is appreciated.
