packet dropped no route for ip multicast

Hi Team,


I have a multicast setup. I am able to see that the PIM neighbourship is completed and igmp membership also fine.

I can see my traffic in multicast fib with the correct incoming and outgoing interfaces. but the multicast packet is not reaching receiver, I can see a lot of packet drop in counter with detail "packet dropped no route for ip multicast". Any idea what will be the reason for this.


Thanks in advance.

Have you created a security policy to actually allow the traffic with the multicast group address? I believe that only when that's done you'll actually stop that counter from incrementing.
