configure pim border

configure pim {ipv4 | ipv6} [{vlan} vlan_name] border

ipv6 Configures a PIM timer on IPv6 router interfaces.
vlan_name Specifies a VLAN name.
border Interface is domain border.



Usage Guidelines

MSDP is used to connect multiple multicast routing domains. A PIM-SM domain is created by limitingthe reach of PIM BSR advertisements. When a border VLAN is configured, PIM BSR advertisements are not forwarded out of the PIM VLAN.


The following example configures a PIM border on a VLAN called "vlan_border":

configure pim vlan_border border
