IP Multicasting

No but probably preferable, have a look at Cisco press book IP Multicasing
volume 1.


1) No
2) Check out the really excellent FAQ on the sprintlink web site
(www.sprintlink.net). Anycast RP is FAR superior to the auto-RP approach
descripted in the Cisco press book, which is now somewhat dated.
3) The MBone is legacy, and more or less deprecated. Find a multicast
savvy transit providers and use them instead. Set up MSDP and MBGP
peering with them.
