Test Multicast Join

Jun 2017


We can test if our device can join a multicast using a tool called iperf. iperf is not installed by default, so you will have to add it by us9ing:

  yum install iperf


Once installed, you can use iperf to connect to a multicast stream by using the following syntax.

  iperf -s -u -B 239.0.200.1 -p 10001 -i 1


Example output
