At work we are experimenting with multicast but it stopped working sometime during my holiday. Multicast is quite new for our network management so it was confusing what was wrong. Lots of searching and debugging later we found a fellow Surfnet customer was announcing a rendezvous-point which wasn't going to do the pim rendezvous protocol for us. So we configured the multicast routers to fix on the Surfnet rendezvous point address (220.127.116.11). Surfnet now filters the auto-rp group to avoid problems like these in the future. We learned a lot about multicast debugging in the process.
Just in time: we hope to follow the olympic games in HD quality via multicast streams.
