DVMRP

(Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol) The first popular routing protocol to support multicast. Stemming from RIP and used in the Internet's Mbone (multicast backbone), DVMRP allows for tunneling multicast messages within unicast packets. It also supports rate limiting and distribution control based on destination address. Contrast with MOSPF and PIM.

RIP calculates each next step towards a destination using the Bellman Ford algorithm; Instead DVMRP computes each step from the destinations to the source (backward), based on unicast tables provided by RIP.
Knowing that we pass the University of New Hampshire's requirements for the DVMRP multicast protocol, both as outlined in the RFC and as updated in the very latest draft, reassures the industry and our customers that we are not only at the forefront of IETF standards and activities, but that we provide technology that works, is stable, and can safely be deployed.
