I'm not sure, but maybe pimd is needed when you need to forward multicast between 2 reals interface on a bridge ?


I have tested this setup:


[PROXMOX1]                  [PROXMOX2]
    |                          |
  SWITCH1                   SWITCH2
     |-----SWITCHBACKBONE------|


proxmox1: ip on vmbr0 : igmp_snooping disabled
proxmox2 : ip on eth0

And multicast is working fine.

I have also disabled igmp_snooping on vmbrXvX, with corosync-pacemaker inside my vms,
multicasting works fine too.

there is still a debian package for it:
