Multicast configuration for IPTV

Hi all,

I'm lost configuring my PA-500 for IPTV using multicast.

My provider has a new option for IPTV.

They stated that in order to test the configuration one should try to open:


So far I was not able to get this to work.

I understand that one needs to enable multicast on the virtual router.

I enabled it for the internal interface with IGMP enabled.

Whenever I add the external interface with PIM enabled I get an error message when validating the configuration

Failed to get IP address for interface ethernet1/1. (Module: routed)


Any hints appreciated how to get IPTV with multicast to work.
