This article proposes a destination-driven on-demand multicast routing protocol (D-ODMRP) to improve the multicast forwarding efficiency in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). In D-ODMRP, the path from the multicast source to a multicast destination tends to use those paths passing through another multicast destination. If such multiple paths are available, the one leading to the least extra cost is preferred. This destination-driven strategy is introduced into the on-demand construction process of a multicast forwarding structure in a popular multicast protocol ODMRP. Simulation results show that D-ODMRP can significantly improve the forwarding efficiency as compared with ODMRP. Moreover, the destination-driven strategy can also be introduced into other existing multicast routing protocols for MANETs.
