Fortinet and Wifi Multicast Enhancement

Multicast enhancement

FortiOS can translate multicast traffic into unicast traffic to send to clients, maintaining its own multicast client through IGMP snooping. You can configure this in the CLI:

config wireless-controller vap edit example_wlan set multicast-enhance enable set me-disable-thresh 32


If the number of clients on the SSID is larger than me-disable-thresh, multicast enhancement is disabled.
