SYNOPSIS

pmsft [file]

DESCRIPTION

The pmsft utility specifies a Multicast Source Filter (MSF) using APIs specified in Socket Interface Extention for MSF (RFC3678). Since pmsft adopts a protocol-independent API, both IPv4 and IPv6 MSF are supported.

pmsft specifies an MSF on command-prompt "pmsft>". Here is the list of commands that can be specified:

j grp ifname
  join a group grp on interface ifname.

l group ifname
  leave a group grp on interface ifname.

i grp ifname num
  set an include mode MSF for group grp on interface ifname. (followed by num lines of source addresses)

e grp ifname num
  set an exclude mode MSF for group grp on interface ifname. (followed by num lines of source addresses)

t grp ifname src
  accept multicast packets from src to grp on interface ifname

b grp ifname src
  deny multicast packets from src to grp on interface ifname

g grp ifname num
  get and show MSF regarding group grp on interface ifname (atmost num sources).

s seconds
  sleep for the specified seconds.

f filename
  read command(s) from file filename.

q quit pmsft

If there is an optional argument file , it is equivalent to the following command:

pmsft> f file

HISTORY

The pmsft command is originally based on wilbertdg@hetnet.nl’s pmsft, supporting only IGMPv3.
