Multicast on Switches

Hi Everyone,

Just curious, 
Do i need to enable/configure anything on my switches (L2 and L3 switches) so that multicast works?
Network is a collapsed core type. e.g., we have one Core-switches and all our access switches are connected to core.

Hope someone can help 

 

Thanks! :D

HI,It really depends on you.

HI,

It really depends on you. R u using complete Layer 2 for Multicast then nothing much other then few things to keep in mind. But if you are involing layer2 + layer 3 then there is much needed your attention as you need to keep aware of your RP etc....

 

Layer 2:-

Only you need to keep aware of igmp snooping querier.

 

Layer 3:-

PIM/ RP etc..
