router multicast6

Use this command to configure the FortiGate unit as an IPv6 Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) version 2 router.

note icon Multicast routing is not supported in Transparent mode.
config router multicast6
    set multicast-routing {enable | disable}   Enable/disable IPv6 multicast routing.
    set multicast-pmtu {enable | disable}   Enable/disable PMTU for IPv6 multicast.
    config interface
        edit {name}
        # Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) interfaces.
            set name {string}   Interface name. size[15] - datasource(s): system.interface.name
            set hello-interval {integer}   Interval between sending PIM hello messages  (1 - 65535 sec, default = 30).. range[1-65535]
            set hello-holdtime {integer}   Time before old neighbour information expires (1 - 65535 sec, default = 105). range[1-65535]
        next
    config pim-sm-global
        set register-rate-limit {integer}   Limit of packets/sec per source registered through this RP (0 means unlimited). range[0-65535]
        config rp-address
            edit {id}
            # Statically configured RP addresses.
                set id {integer}   ID of the entry. range[0-4294967295]
                set ip6-address {ipv6 address}   RP router IPv6 address.
            next
end

Additional information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

config interface

Use this subcommand to configure the multicast6 interface.

hello-holdtime <seconds>

Specify the amount of time that a PIM neighbor may consider the information in a hello message to be valid (1 - 65 535 seconds, default = 105).

If the hello-interval attribute is modified and the hello-holdtime attribute has never been set explicitly, the hello-holdtime attribute is automatically set to 3.5 x hello-interval.

hello-interval <seconds>

Set the amount of time that the FortiGate unit waits between sending hello messages to neighboring PIM routers (1 - 65 535, default = 30).

Changing the hello-interval attribute may automatically update the hello-holdtime attribute .
