> Hello All,
> I am proud to present you a basic multicast forwarding plugin
> for OLSR: BMF. BMF was developed at Thales Communication,
> Huizen, Netherlands.
> The Basic Multicast Forwarding Plugin floods IP-multicast and
> IP-local-broadcast traffic over an OLSRD network. It uses the
> Multi-Point Relays (MPRs) as identified by the OLSR protocol
> to optimize the flooding of multicast and local broadcast packets
> to all the nodes in the network. To prevent broadcast storms, a
> history of packets is kept; only packets that have not been seen
> in the past 3-6 seconds are forwarded.
> To build and use the plugin you need at least OLSRD version 0.4.10.
> You may get a copy of the source code on:
> In due time I will have a sourceforge.net project in which I will
> do maintenance of the code.
> Here is how to install it:
> Download the above olsr-bmf.tar.gz file into your OLSRD base install
> Change directory (cd) to your OLSRD base install directory.
> At the command prompt, type:
> tar -zxvf ./olsr-bmf.tar.gz
> then type:
> make build_all
> followed by:
> make install_all
> Next, read the readme file:
> more ./lib/bmf/README_BMF.txt
> Have fun with it!
