This document specifies some simple mechanisms to distribute multicast data
packets within a Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET).
This document provides basic and simple multicast forwarding that can
complement the on-going unicast routing protocol efforts of the MANET
working group. Additionally, this document describes several different
reduced relay set algorithms that can be used to make multicast
dissemination more efficient.
Working Group Summary
There were no issues in the WG process. The I-D has progressed very
slowly since WG lsat call as updates to address WG last call comments
and to satisfy AD review have been slow.
This is intended for publication as an Experimental RFC.
Several interoperable implementations of SMF exist; although only
one is available. Note: that several of the methods laid out in SMF
have been included in many MANET protocols and their
