Description

Hi All,

I am currently trying to do multicast over ad-hoc network. I am unable to do multi-hop multicasting over batman. I wish to know how exactly to go about in solving the above stated problem. Batman scenario that i trying to do is as below.

A->B->C

here A, B and C belong to a multicast group. A and C dont have direct ad-hoc radio link, hence the nexthop to reach C is B. now i want to send multicast message to C via B. I wish to know solve this problem.

Regards,
Sharath

batman-adv already supports this (multicast is handled as broadcast). There are also specific multicast optimizations which you can look at.
