(Optional) Configuring an SSM Group Policy


By default, the address of a Source-Specific Multicast (SSM) group ranges from to If a user joins a multicast group whose IP address is not in this range, configure an SSM group policy in the VLAN to add the multicast group address to the range of SSM group addresses. The SSM group policy must be used together with an ACL. For details on how to configure an ACL, see "ACL Configuration" in the Huawei AR Series IOT Gateway Configuration Guide - Security.


By default, the ACL applied to an SSM group policy denies all multicast groups. Therefore, to exclude specific group addresses from the SSM group address range, use a rule permit source any rule with deny rules in the ACL.
