Configure IP Multicasting on your network

What you will learn

Understand how to configure multicast on Cisco devices

Understand how to verify your configuration

Understand how to troubleshoot in case you have any issue


This mini course is all about Multicast and all the necessary commands to configure this feature in your network!

I have explained all commands in detail so that you can easily get a grab on that feaure. If you cannot find a feature, this means either it is obsolete and a better feature replaces that or I have forgotten to include it. In the latter case, I will be more than happy if you let me know what you want and I will add it to the curriculum.

I have used GNS3 for the simulation. However, you can execute all commands on a real gear without any change.
