Hi there,

Just chipping in to say I have Vodafone TV working with my Vodafone UFB plan using an Ubiquity Edgerouter rather than the supplied HG659 router. Below is the pertinant sections of my config file and I'm happy to talk through this further if anyone is looking to achieve this themselves.

IGMP Settings:

 

protocols {

 

igmp-proxy {

 

interface eth0.10 {

 

alt-subnet 203.167.247.45/32

 

role upstream

 

threshold 1

 

}

 

interface eth4 {

 

alt-subnet 192.168.1.0/24

 

role downstream

 

threshold 1

 

}

 

}

 

}

 


Firewall Rules:

 

rule 21 {

 

action accept

 

description iptv

 

destination {

 

address 0.0.0.0/0

 

group {

 

}

 

}

 

log enable

 

protocol udp

 

source {

 

address 203.167.247.45/32

 

}

 

}

 

rule 22 {

 

action accept

 

description iptv2

 

destination {

 

address 224.0.0.1

 

}

 

log enable

 

protocol igmp

 

source {

 

address 10.0.0.2

 

}

 

}

 

}

Good to see this working with another router. The Ubiquiti Edgerouter is a good piece of kit and a massive upgrade over the HG659.

I switched to one and am loving it so far. The only problem with this method is Vodafone will likely not support it if you have issues with your TV box (blaming the router) so keep the old router around just in case to prove it isn't your router causing any problems.

What a great first post.

I'm seriously considering going back to Vodafone cable if Chorus can't sort out the broken UFB connection at my house (it has been a week already).  Now I know how to get the Vodafone TV to work with my favourite router.

DON"T DO IT. 
Cable is broken at the moment.
Visit the Krapi Cable thread.

I got Vodafone TV working better over a higher end ASUS router a year or two back.

It also fixed the random issues the user was experiencing.

mdooher: Don't suppose anyone here has got it working on a Mikrotik.... he says hoping for a sample config


based off the fact that hes given the raw rules to use, it should be relatively easy to convert that to Mikrotik. assuming it handles IGMP proxing etc, which is should.

I know, I am being Lazy.

I speak cisco IOS and Mikrotik Router Os, but not being familiar with The Ubiquity one I thought I'd ask incase I missed something obvious.

Funny, because I used information for other routers to get there, then compared against general how to's on the ubiquity forums to figure it out. Basically it's just setting up the multicasting and opening up the firewall.

However update, we have had issues where it will randomly stop working for up to 5 mins a couple of times each night then pickup again as if no issues. EPG works throughout but the picture drops. I'll be diving into the hg659 settings and logs to try and see if there's extra settings going on that I can replicate on the edgerouter. Because it only happens at night I wonder if my configuration is putting the TV stream in with my normal data when it should be coming in over top. Kind of like how with adsl the data traffic and voice traffic are totally seperate. I'll have to check my logged data use on Vodafone as it should show a massive spike in traffic if it is.

I'll update the progress when I have a chance to look at it but in the mean time the multicasting and firewall settings above will get it working on any igmp capable device.

Thanks for the warning.  Fortunately it looks like after eight working days our UFB is working again although Chorus have still not confirmed to our ISP that it is sorted.

Surely the Ubiquity CLI can't be that different? Although I have only used Ubiquity CLI so don't know what the others CLI is like.

Also glad that there is another person who is using an Edge router. (Although would still be happy if it was a Mikrotik).

Thinking someone needs to start a sticky thread with links to example configs. For getting PfSense, Mikrotik, Ubiquity, Cisco routers ect working on NZ UFB connections.

I did do one for Mikrotik some time ago: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=161676

Can do another guide for the Edgerouter.
