What is is the difference between these two command that enable Multicast?

I see that both get used frequently. My WLC does not seem to support the top one:

 

config network ap-mcast-mode multicast 239.239.239.239

config network multicast mode multicast 239.239.239.239

 

 

Thanks

Yes, first one may be a old command in previous WLC code versions. No longer supported in newer codes.

You only require 2nd command to configure a multicast group for WLC to use for CAPWAP multicast for APs.

I agree with the Manannalage and yes the first one is the old command in previous WLC code versions. so it will not work on the newer wireless controllers. you will need to use the 2nd command.


Please go through the below below link for more info about the multicast configuration and its CLI commands.
