A5 + C5 multicast over vlan's


Hi all,

We want to use it to send it IPTV services to the clients. We try to do it and seems the multicast traffic cannot croos over the link.

Thank you.


If the C5s, and the routers/switches/devices/IP Cameras are on differing VLANs then they will not get multicast traffic from each other. (Unless my understanding of VLANs is completely incorrect) All devices you want to get multicast traffic will need to be on the same subnet/vlan.


Ya, if you want multicast stuff to go between VLANs you need to config that in your router.

The A5 just works like a switch, such as in this example.
