I’m getting a bit confused by some outputs on the
show ip mroute command.
When i have a multicast source trying to join a group, the router connected to the host shows an entry in the form of (*,G).
But I’m also reading PIM Sparse mode uses Shared Tree format of (*,G), where * is a wilcard mask meaning all sources.
I’m confused as to when the (*,G) entry is being used as IGMP v2 join or Shared Tree entry.
thanks in advance for any anwsers. Mutlicast takes some learning.
