Alarm Information
None.
Handling Process
Key configurations are as follows:
1.          Transparent mode:

[USG5300]firewall  unknown-mac  multicast  flood 
2.          Routing mode:

[USG5300]multicast interface-set set-name
//Create a static multicast interface set and go to the corresponding view

[USG5300]add interface interface-type interface-number
//Configure the member interfaces of the static multicast interface set. One static multicast interface set can contain multiple interfaces for forwarding various static multicast packets. Member interfaces of the static multicast interface set can be Ethernet interfaces or Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The member interfaces include the ingress interfaces and egress interfaces of multicast packets.

[USG5300-if-set-a1] quit

[USG5300] multicast route-table static source 10.1.1.2 group 235.0.0.1 in-interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/0 interface-set a1 newsource 1.1.2.2  
//Create static multicast routing entries.
235.0.0.1 is a usable multicast address for users, that is, temporary multicast address. It is valid on the entire network. The multicast address can be replaced by any IP address that is within the range of 224.0.1.0 to 231.255.255.255 and 233.0.0.0 to 238.255.255.255.
Root Cause
According to the network diagram, the customer can configure transparent transmission of multicast packets on the USG5300 by using any of the following methods:
1.      Configure transparent transmission of multicast packets when the USG5300 works in transparent mode.
2.      Configure transparent transmission of multicast packets when the USG5300 works in routing mode.
Suggestions
None.
