Hi Davide,

Thanks for that. It works now.

Junxiao, I have a “multicast” Ethernet group in the config. All my Ethernet faces belong to that group. If I have to manually register each face, what is the significance of the group in this context?

Thank you.

Hi Davide

FaceIdFetcher returning only one face is by design.

nfdc manpage says for "register" sub-command:
Register a new or update existing routing entry in Routing Information Base (RIB).

The word "a" indicates that only one route will be installed.
So it's correct to use one face only.

Yours, Junxiao

Question for Alex/Junxiao: nfdc's FaceIdFetcher returns only 1 faceId
in case multiple faces match the specified faceUri. Is this intended
behavior or a bug?
