Enables PIM SSM on an IP interface.
|ipv4||Specifies the IPv4 address family.|
|ipv6||Specifies the IPv6 address family.|
|vlan_name||Specifies a VLAN name.|
|all||Specifies all VLANs.|
Disabled on all interfaces.
This command enables PIM-SSM on the specified Layer 3 VLAN.
PIM-SM must also be configured on the interface for PIM to begin operating (which includes enabling IP multicast forwarding).
IGMPv3 include messages for multicast addresses in the SSM range are only processed by PIM if PIM-SSM is enabled on the interface. Any non-IGMPv3 include messages in the SSM range are not processed by PIM on any switch interface, whether SSM is enabled or not.
The following example enables PIM-SSM multicast routing on VLAN accounting:
enable pim ssm vlan accounting
