What is IGMP : 

Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is a protocol that allows IP routers to dynamically determine which multicast groups have clients in a subnet.

IGMP is a protocol executed between the host machines of the same subnet and the multicast routers of this subnet. It allows a host machine to inform one of these multicast routers about its current subscriptions to multicast groups. Routers maintain the list of multicast groups to which host machines have reported that they are subscribed.


IGMP Snooping controls these multicast groups by monitoring and analyzing multicast packets exchanged between upstream Layer 3 multicast devices and downstream hosts to suppress unnecessary multicast data transfer in multicast networks. layer 2.

it’s better to use a Vlan dedicated for IGMP (here VLAN 10) 

Master Switch side : 

  • Enable IGMP Snooping

Advanced Configuration / IGMP Snooping


VLAN Configuration

Add new IGMP VLAN (example here VLAN 10)


 Tag Settings : 

command-line :
