README

$KAME: README,v 1.2 2000/07/24 01:00:28 itojun Exp $

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
THIS RELEASE IS VERY ALPHA, SO PLEASE DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE AND
DO NOT TRY IT OUTSIDE OF YOUR TESTBED.

This is README for pimd, the PIM multicast daemon.
PIM-SM version: 2
Check ftp://catarina.usc.edu/pub/pim/pimd/ for lastest version.

SUPPORTED PLATFORMS: FreeBSD-2.2.*, SunOS-4.1.3, Solaris-2.5.1 and 2.6,
SGI, BSDI 3.0/3.1, NetBSD-1.3

AVAILABLE PIM kernel patches: FreeBSD-2.2.1, FreeBSD-2.2.2, FreeBSD-2.2,5,
		SunOS-4.1.3, SGI, BSDI-3.0, BSDI-3.1, NetBSD-1.3

Linux: pimd compiles under Linux, and linux-2.1.103 seems to have PIM-SMv2
kernel support, but I haven't tested whether the kernel patches really work.

FAST START (read "fast explanation" :))

1. Apply the PIM kernel patches, recompile, reboot

2. Copy pimd.conf to /etc and edit as appropriate. Disable the interfaces
you don't need. Note that you need at least 2 physical interfaces enabled.

3. Edit Makefile by uncommenting the line(s) corresponding to your platform.

4. Recompile pimd

5. Run pimd as a root. It is highly recommended to run it in debug mode.
Because there are many debug messages, you can specify only a subset of
the messages to be printed out:

usage: pimd [-c configfile] [-d [debug_level][,debug_level]]

Valid debug levels: dvmrp_prunes,dvmrp_mrt,dvmrp_neighbors,dvmrp_timers,igmp_proto,igmp_timers,igmp_members,trace,timeout,pkt,interfaces,kernel,cache,rsrr,pim_hello,pim_register,pim_join_prune,pim_bootstrap,pim_asserts,pim_cand_rp,pim_routes,pim_timers,pim_rpf

If you want to see all messages, use "pimd -d" only.

6. Note that it takes of the order of 30 seconds to 1 minute until the
Bootstrap router is elected and the RP-set distributed to the PIM routers,
and without the RP-set in the routers the multicast packets cannot be
forwarded.

7. There are plenty of bugs, some of them known (check BUGS.TODO),
some of them unknown, so your bug reports are more than welcome.

 * The PIM kernel modifications and pimd itself were originally
   written by Ahmed Helmy (ahelmy@catarina.usc.edu) as a summer intern in SGI.

 * The "up to the March '97 I-D spec" + RSVP support pimd version was done
   during my summer'97 intern in Sun Microsystems under Michael Speer's
   supervision.

 * BSDI 3.0/3.1 support + various improvements and bug reports
   by Hitoshi Asaeda (asaeda@yamato.ibm.co.jp).

 * Bug reports and SunOS tests by Isabelle Girard (girardi@rc.bel.alcatel.be)
   and Dirk Ooms (oomsd@rc.bel.alcatel.be)

 * NetBSD-1.3 compilation support (both for pimd and the kernel mods) and
   bug reports by Heiko W.Rupp <hwr@pilhuhn.de>

 * Bug reports by Chirayu Shah (shahzad@torrentnet.com)

 * A number of changes copied back from pimdd (PIM-DM) stand-alone
   implementation by Kurt Windisch (kurtw@antc.uoregon.edu)

 * Linux patches by "Jonathan Day" <jd9812@my-dejanews.com> and
   Fred Griffoul <griffoul@ccrle.nec.de>

 * Thanks to the FreeBSD team and particularly to the
   freebsd-hackers mailing list participants for the help
   with the real-time debugging of the FreeBSD kernel.
