Network Switch [IGMP] - Configure IGMP Multicast Routing [Clients in the Same LAN]

The example shows administrators how to configure IGMP Snooping for multicast clients and steaming servers in the same VLAN.
When MediaServer multicasts the stream, IGMP snooping allows the switch to learn multicast groups without having the user to manually configure each switch.
This prevents the switch from flooding multicast streams on ports that have no members for these multicast addresses.

2. Test the Result

  • Play the stream on MediaServer using Multicast IP address 239.1.1.1.
  • Have PC send an IGMP join message for 239.1.1.1.
  • Go to:
