  1. Hi Hans, is the IP address of R1. I usually use subnets / IP addresses like this:

    192.168.XY.X where X = R1 and Y = R2.

    For loopbacks I use for R1, for R2 etc.


  2. Hi Rene,

    What if I sourced the Multicast traffic from R1 Loopback, will it accept, for my lab its not accept and showing RPF failed or RP failed from debug, even though R2 has correc RPF.


  3. Hi Jam,

    It doesn’t matter if you use a loopback or “regular” interface as the source as long the RPF check is correct. It’s difficult to tell what is wrong without seeing your config.

  4. I believe the picture should be updated using for R1 and .2 for R2.

    Thank you,

  5. Hi Stefanita,

    That’s right, thanks for letting us know. Just fixed this.
