How to configure Multicast

Hi,

I am beginner of checkpoint.

I would like to ask about multicast configuration.

I have below network for video stream.

Video Server==> Switch1==>CP5600=> Switch2 =>PC

When PC is directly connected to Switch1, i can get video stream.

But when PC is connected switch2 or checkpoint firewall port, i can not get the video stream.

So please let what kind of configuration do i need to add ?

  • I configured PIM dense mode in both of  WAN interface and LAN interface of CP5600 

do i need to configure igmp snooping in switch 1 and switch 2 ?

do i need to change sparse mode in firewall ?

Do i need to change routed mode to bridge mode ?

Hello.

 

Going to basics and most importantly, is there firewall rules in place to allow multicast?
