[B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCH 13/20] batman-adv: Send own BAT_MCAST packets in proact_tracking multicast mode

Linus Lüssing linus.luessing at saxnet.de
Tue Dec 7 23:32:23 CET 2010


This patch adds the capability to encapsulate and send a node's own
multicast data packets. Based on the previously established multicast
forwarding table, the sender can decide wheather it actually has to send
the multicast data to one or more of its interfaces or not.

Furthermore, the sending procedure also decides whether to broadcast or
unicast a multicast data packet to its next-hops, depending on the
configured mcast_fanout (default: < 3 next hops on an interface, send
seperate unicast packets).
