Checklist: Installing IP multicast video conferencing


Step Reference

Review key concepts.

IP Multicast Video Conferencing

Confirm that TCP/IP is running on your network.

TCP/IP Core Networking Service

Confirm that your network is enabled for multicast.

Enabling IP multicast

Confirm that you have an Active Directory domain and that a TAPI application directory partition is available on your network.

TAPI and Active Directory;Active Directory

Configure MADCAP on your network for IP multicast telephony.

  • Install the DHCP server if it is not already installed.

  • For networks using domains, you must authorize the DHCP service in the domain's directory service database. This prevents users from setting up unauthorized DHCP services.

    You do not need to do this, however, if the server has been authorized already (for example, if it already functioning as a DHCP server).

  • To have the DHCP server allocate multicast addresses using the MADCAP protocol, create a new multicast scope.
