mrd6 is a ipv6 multicast routing daemon for Linux (and BSD).
You may use mrd6 with any Linux 2.6 based system as no kernel support for ipv6 multicast forwarding is required, that feature is implemented by mrd6 itself.
- MLDv2 (and v1 compatibility)
- PIM-SM (including SSM, BSR and Embedded-RP)
- partial MBGP (IPv6 multicast SAFI)
- native and virtual interface support (tested ipv6-ipv4, ipv6-ipv6, tun/tap)
- remote configuration via cli
- automatic translation of ipv4 multicast to ipv6 (contributed by Teemu Kiviniemi)
Up-to-date binaries are included with Debian and Ubuntu Linux.
The latest source may be downloaded from github using:
git clone github.com/hugosantos/mrd6.git
requirements: a GNU build system, including g++ and make.
To build the default configuration, just run make, a mrd6 binary will be compiled in src/. You can then install it (including default configuration files and man pages) into your system using make install.
For a custom build, run make config, where support for individual features may be enabled or disabled.
