Controlling Multicast Stream using Multicast Security Policies

Hi everyone,

I noticed Multicast policy to control Multicast stream does not allow granular control for applications. For example, we want only UDP 1781 multicast stream should be allowed through FW. I do not see any command within Multicast Security policies, that will allow me to restrict flow based on UDP port numbers.

config firewall multicast-policy edit 1 set srcintf "EXT" set dstintf "INT" set srcaddr "A" set dstaddr "all" next end


FortiGate-VM64 (1) # set protocol <integer> please input integer value 0: ANY 1: ICMP 2: IGMP 6: TCP 17: UDP 89: OSPF xx: Other


No option to define UDP port number.


Is there anyway I can define UDP port number and reference them to in Multicast Security Policy?

Thanks and have a good weekend!!
