I have seen the multicast vseminar and its wonderful but i have a couple of questions though..
1- In sparse mode the request to join source based tree is generated by the RP itself or the pim neigbour that currently reciving the multicast...
2- The pim neigbour will join the source tree if RP is not in the path to the source...right
My question here is how the PIM neigbour can decide whether path
from the RP is the shortest or the path directly to the source ?
3- for a pim neigbour the path to the RP is ok, but the path to the source is having a RPF failure.
now my question is if i will give "ip pim spt threshold infinity" , then pim neigbour will always use the path from the RP does this avoids the RPF failure
check against that particular source for which actually the RPF is failing?
I will recommend all of the guys to have a look on this seminar, it's worth watching..
Keep up the good work guys
