    Cisco 2950 and multicasting

    We are just starting out with WDS and have tried setting up a multicast session which went OK. apart from it seemed to take the wireless access points down I think its the switches that need configuring to allow multicasting.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction on how to do this? we have cisco 2950 series switches

    Thanks

    It could be broadcasts to your AP's - if you haven't got VLANS on your switch anything plugged into it will get the multicast traffic.

    No VLANS on the network. Is there any way around this?

    Short of VLANs, not that I am aware of as the broadcasts will just flood the network.

    if you setup IGMP Snooping

    It then routes to the multicast traffic to the locations required.
