Multicast flooding?

Post by mrc » Sun Dec 03, 2017 11:07 pm

I seem to have a bit of flooding between users on the same virtualhub (and currently only running with one hub).

From the documentation ( ... ng_dropped.)
"All multicast packets at the layer 2 level will be broadcast to all VPN sessions by the Virtual Hub."

In other words, by creating a seperate Virtual HUB for each user (but using the same bridge interfaces), I could avoid flooding? For development purposes, I have a IPTV-setup running over Ethersoft. But I get some issues when multiple users are connected at the same time, and I noticed on my end that I seem to be receiving multicast I don't use, but that other users might be using.

I think L3 based VPN suits for you.
