    Simple setup, several freebsd FreeBSD 9 servers plugged into a switch. I just want to ping multicast between them. I was attempting to set up a simple multicast ntp on a large cluster of servers. https://lopsa.org/node/1480



    Code:
    app0# ifmcstat -i nfe0 -v
    nfe0:
    	inet 10.10.10.50
    	igmpv3 flags=0<> rv 2 qi 125 qri 100 uri 3
    		group 225.10.0.5 mode exclude
    			mcast-macaddr 01:00:5e:0a:00:05
    	link 00:e0:81:ba:f5:62
    		group 01:00:5e:0a:00:05
    	inet 10.10.10.50
    	igmpv3 flags=0<> rv 2 qi 125 qri 100 uri 3
    		group 224.0.0.1 mode exclude
    			mcast-macaddr 01:00:5e:00:00:01
    	link 00:e0:81:ba:f5:62
    		group 01:00:5e:00:00:01
    app0# 
    

    Code:
    app1# ifmcstat -i nfe0 -v
    nfe0:
    	inet 10.10.10.51
    	igmpv3 flags=0<> rv 2 qi 125 qri 100 uri 3
    		group 225.10.0.5 mode exclude
    			mcast-macaddr 01:00:5e:0a:00:05
    	link 00:e0:81:ba:f4:c6
    		group 01:00:5e:0a:00:05
    	inet 10.10.10.51

    10.10.0.20/21/22/23 and 101 are the Juniper ex4200 switches on the network. I have tried turning IGMP snooping on and off. I don't feel the switches are related to the problem because the pings I am attempting are on the same switches. A.k.a. I am not even trying to span multicast across switches.

    Also if I try to plug a crossover cable in between servers, I still get no multicast response.

    Any hints would be greatly appreciated. Over the last several days I have found documentation on this subject very lacking, that seems due to the idea that it should just work out of the box. All the documentation seems to be focused on multicast _routing_.
