That seems OK:

[root@...313-6477 lanforge]# ip ru show
1000:	from all lookup [l3mdev-table]
1512:	from all lookup local
32766:	from all lookup main
32767:	from all lookup default

I did not have this, so maybe that is the issue.  This is my mcast
transmitter table.

[root@...313-6477 lanforge]# ip route show table 10
broadcast 7.7.1.0 dev rddVR0  proto kernel  scope link  src 7.7.1.2
7.7.1.0/24 dev rddVR0  scope link  src 7.7.1.2
local 7.7.1.2 dev rddVR0  proto kernel  scope host  src 7.7.1.2
broadcast 7.7.1.255 dev rddVR0  proto kernel  scope link  src 7.7.1.2

When sniffing, I see IGMP group add/delete messages sent from the receiver
towards the sender, but transmitted mcast frames are not seen on the rddVR0
(veth mcast sender port).

And now that is interesting.  When I sniff on eth0, which holds the default
route outside of the VRFs, then I do see the mcast frames sent there.

I tried adding default routes, and now sure enough it starts working!

[root@...313-6477 lanforge]# ip route show table 10
default via 7.7.1.1 dev rddVR0
broadcast 7.7.1.0 dev rddVR0  proto kernel  scope link  src 7.7.1.2
7.7.1.0/24 dev rddVR0  scope link  src 7.7.1.2
local 7.7.1.2 dev rddVR0  proto kernel  scope host  src 7.7.1.2
broadcast 7.7.1.255 dev rddVR0  proto kernel  scope link  src 7.7.1.2


I'll work on adding an un-reachable route when a real gateway is not
configured...

Thanks for the hint, saved me lots of work!
