Can't receive Multicast traffic from un-trust zone to trust zone

L2 Linker


We should receive a multicast traffic from a third party router that are connected to our un-trust zone.

This multicast should be received on a server that are connected to LAN environment (trust zone)

Firewall is PA-820 and OS is 9.0.4


We tried to allow multicast and PIM/IGMP on both interfaces but no hope. Multicast is not passing the firewall.

we tried to follow up the Paloalto configuration guide for multicast but same.


Do you have any best practice for multicast ??
