Hi,
Just wondering if Alpine-Linux is supporting DMVPN/Multicast.

See:
http://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Dynamic_Multipoint_VPN_(DMVPN)_Phase_3_with_Quagga_NHRPd
"This NHRP implementation has some limits yet (Multicast is not ready, 
so you need to use BGP rather than OSPF), though is usable in a 
production environment."

Statement is from October 2015

The statement is accurate still. Quagga/NHRP does not support multicast
as of now. Alpine packages Quagga without additional features added.
And the above statement is based on:
 http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/quagga.git/plain/nhrpd/README.nhrpd

It would probably not be too complicated to implement, but you are the
first one to ask about this so far.

Thanks,
Timo
