What is the difference in a interface between to use config join-group and create static igmp group address (config router multicast-flow)?
Because "Creating a static IGMP group entry ensures that FortiGate will preserve this IGMP group information for a given group and interface and will continue to deliver the multicast stream over the designated interface"
and join-group? can I use join-group to force remote pim enabled node to send me specific multicast group address or what else?
Adding static-group for specific interface enables the Join request for a specified group, so always the stream will be sent towards this interface(then it will be forwarded towards the connected devices/receivers).
The Multicast-flow entries allows you a leverage of defining both group and source address ; however the 'config join-group' under PIM interfaces would allow you to set only group address.
