As i remember the lack of multicast replication was the reason this stopped up last time it was discussed... And as ospf and eigrp is the most used protocols run over dmvpn i think this is a showstopper for implementimg nhrpd
@c-po There is some recent news on FRR's NHRPD and multicast support it seems, please see here:
July 29, 2021 The FRR community is pleased to announce FRR 8.0. In this release there are over 2200 commits from 91 different authors. Please note that we expect to release a bugfix point release relatively soon after this release. nhrpd - Add nhrp multicast-nflog-group (1-65535) command - Add configuration options for vici socket path - Add support for forwarding multicast packets - Fix handling of MTU - Fix handling of NAT extension - Retry IPsec under some conditions
I agree it would be nice to have the Cisco Auth functionality, however, the original author of opennhrp themselves recommend using FRR nhrpd instead where possible. It appears that most effort going forward will be put into FRR's nhrpd, and not the original opennhrp.
