Quick little issue here. I'm pretty new to multicasting, through various forums and Cisco research I have been able to develop a multicast testing lab consisting of 3x Linux laptops and 2x 2921 routers. I have attached my topology and config files for clarity. I am able to see my multicast messages from Router1 to Receiver1 but I cannot get my messages across to Receiver2. I have also attached some troubleshooting command outputs from both Router1 and Router2 to see if you guys can spot anything that doesn't seem right. I've exhausted myself trying to figure out why this won't work. Any help is appreciated.

Generate traffic from the source and post the output of the following commands from both routers: " show ip igmp membership 184.108.40.206" , "show ip mroute 220.127.116.11", "show ip mfib count 18.104.22.168" and "debug ip mfib pak 22.214.171.124".

Okay, so I ran the python script for sending UDP multicast, and ran the commands while it was doing it's thing. I have attached the following outputs from both routers. Interesting results from the "debug" command on Router2, I saw no traffic. Do I have to set up a GRE Tunnel in order to get packets across in a multicast environment? I can ping my whole network, including my multicast address on both routers.

Cristian, I only see IGMPv3 join messages from the 12 network. I have made the changes and the results are attached. A few results, expected of course. One thing I can say is for some reason on any troubleshooting command I run, I never see the 13.0 network. It is as if for some reason it will not join the multicast group, even with it configured correctly. All TTL's are not a factor after a bit of research. Source TTL is 32 and the routers are automatic on all interfaces with a multicast ttl threshold of 0. While I made the changes, the traffic for 126.96.36.199 kept being received on R1, wouldn't you think that if you got rid of the "join-groups" that the messages would stop?

Paul, I made the change you requested before making the changes Cristian told me to make, no difference. Still seeing no messages on receiver 13.2. We also have tried running the same python script but on a different port at the same time and matched it on 13.2 receive script, nothing.
