I'd like to verify if I understand multicasting correctly. In a pim sparse-mode configuration, the RP rtr becomes the "root" of the stream for the rest of the configured routers. Does this mean that destination hosts clients will get their stream directly from that rp router? Or will they get the stream from their closest pim router?
[pim rtr] <---> [pim rtr] <---> ["RP rtr"] <---> [pim rtr] | | [source host] [destination host]
