  1. Dear Sir,
    You explain in a very good way, your explanation make the tough things simpler. Thanks for your contribution to the Networking Society.

  2. Hi Rene,
    I am a beginner and interested in learning IGMP and PIM protocols . Can you please point me the links to start these protocols?


  3. Rene,
    Can we enable SSM with Dense-mode?


  4. Hi Vanya,

    It’s not flooded. With sparse mode, we initially use an RP as a central point since we don’t know where the source is. Once we learn the source, we switch to SPT (unless you disable this).

    With SSM, you have to specify the source so that’s why you don’t need the RP. Traffic is forwarded with sparse mode.
