Beestack multicast route discovery issues

I'm doing some experimenting with beekit, and am having issues with multicasts under very specific circumstances:

 

  • Zigbee pro
  • All members of the multicast group are end devices
  • The message is sent from someone outside the group

 

Since the message is from outside the group, the sender will do a unicast transmission to a member of the group, who will then perform a broadcast. The problem is that the route discovery command to find a member of the group never gets delivered to end devices, and therefore never gets delivered to a group member, so a route is never found, and the multicast message is never sent.

 

The process works find when there is a router that is part of the group, but not when there is only end devices.

 

Any way to fix this, besides turning on the use broadcast for group messages option?
