In order for multicast to work correctly, you need to make sure that IGMP
snooping is enabled on the control switch. This is needed for frisbee, our
disk-loading system. It's up to you wheter you want to enable this on the
experimental switches. On CatOS, the command is:
set igmp enable
#### VTP domains
If you have only one Cisco experimental-net switch, you don't need to have it
using VTP, which is a mechanism for keeping VLANs in sync across multiple
switches. You do this (in CatOS) with:
set vtp mode transparent
If you have multiple experimental switches connected by trunk lines, you should
use FTP. Pick a domain name (we call ours simply 'Testbed',) and run the
following on all of your switches:
set vtp domain <domainname>
Pick one switch to be the master - it doesn't really matter which one. (See the
switch setup insturctions in setup-db.txt, and make sure you name the stack
