How to repair old drain pipe?

Is there a way to repair a leak in an older drain pipe? It only leaks when I take a shower or wash dishes, so it seems to be drain pipe.

Can you tell from the picture, Is this a Galvanized Steel drain pipe? or Cast iron?

The line is where it's leaking from.

Is there a material I can put on the outside to repair a small leak?

Some kind of caulking, sealant, etc? Even if it's not a perfect repair?

thank you,
