I am learner in Linux.
I am trying to run the PIM-SM code on linux. I have the linux kernel of version 2.2.12-20 on i686. I have the PIM-SM code of version 2.1.0-alpha28 implemented by Pavlin Ivanov Radoslavov. I have some basic doubts
1. Earlier IP multicast support was not there, now I have recompiled the kernel. Now I am not able to ping to 188.8.131.52 & 184.108.40.206. I searched thru website I got to know that the route has to be added. My question is what is the need to add the route explicitly, whereas in windows it is not needed?
2. I saw a file ipmr.c in linux which has the option of receving the PIM-SM version 1 and version 2. My question is the PIM-SM code is already added in the kernel or should I add the code to the kernel explicitly.
Thanking you in advance
