ip pgm router

Level 1
Level 1

Forgive me if this is already asked.  I am installing a new switch and need to deploy Pragmatic General Multicasting.  I have configured my layer 3 interface but the command (ip pgm router) is unavailable/deprecated.  I can't seem to find any documentation as to what the new command would be for IOS XE 16.9.2 (Fuji).  If anyone has any helpful info, it would be greatly appreciated.



Cisco 9407 (IOS XE 16.9.2)

Interface - TenGig SFP (currently shutdown)

  • Layer 3 enabled
  • ip pim dense-mode
  • OSPF
  • QoS
  • Service Policy applied


Commands entered:

(config)#ip routing

(config)#ip multicast-routing

(config)#int te2/0/1

(config-if)#ip ? (Not available - %Unrecognized command)

Hi Luis,

    Thank you for your reply.  I see the command was deprecated in this version of IOS, but what I am looking for is what to use instead of PGM.  I have an application that relies on it(PGM) but the vendor doesn't have documentation for newer version of IOS that don't support PGM.  Is it as simple as enabling ip multicast-routing and expect it to work?
