What is IGMP proxy v2 or v3?
IGMP version 3 adds support for “source filtering”. IGMP version 1 and version 2 allow hosts to join multicast groups but they don’t check the source of the traffic. Any source is able to receive traffic to the multicast group(s) that they joined.
How do I enable IGMP on a Cisco switch?
To enable Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping, use the ip igmp snooping enable command in switch configuration mode. To return to the default, use the no form of this command. To enable IGMP Snooping querier globally, use the ip igmp snooping querier enable command in switch configuration mode.
Is IGMP Layer 2 or layer 3?
IGMP is a network layer (Layer 3) protocol used to establish membership in a Multicast group and can register a router to receive specific Multicast traffic. (Refer to RFC 1112 and RFC 2236 for information on IGMP versions 1 and 2.)
Should I enable IGMPv3?
For a home based network, you should enable it when you frequently use any kind of streaming or mirroring from your devices to stream to Apple TV or Chromecast. In some brand firmware such as Asus, enabling IGMP Snooping can fix some of the Apple TV Airplay mirroring issues.
Is IGMP 3 backwards compatible?
IGMPv3 supports source-specific join and leave messages and is backward compatible with IGMPv1 and IGMPv2.
Is IGMP enabled by default?
IGMP snooping is enabled on all VLANs by default, but can be enabled and disabled on a per-VLAN basis.
Should I use IGMP?
Is IGMP snooping Layer 3?
IGMP snooping monitors the Layer 3 IGMP traffic. If a multicast group has only sources and no receivers in a VLAN, IGMP snooping constrains the multicast traffic to only the multicast router ports.
Is multicast L2 or L3?
L2 multicast is concerned with delivering the multicast stream within a vlan eg. IGMP snooping etc. L3 multicast is concerned with delivering the multicast stream between vlans eg PIM .
What is the protocol number for IGMP?
IGMP is a network layer protocol used to set up multicasting on networks that use the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). Specifically, IGMP allows devices to join a multicasting group.
Should IGMP be enabled?
IGMP proxying should be left enabled unless it causes problems. This allows the router to convert Multicast traffic into Unicast traffic, allowing for the network especially wireless devices, to work more efficiently.
Is IGMPv3 backwards compatible with IGMPv2?
How do you test IGMP protocol?
- Step 1: Select test modules and ports.
- Step 2: Ensure that IGMP snooping is disabled on the DUT.
- Step 3: Enable IGMP emulation on the first destination test port.
- Step 4: Transmit multicast traffic from the source tester port.
- Step 5: Verify that the traffic is received on both of the destination tester ports.
What port does IGMP use?
IGMP reports are forwarded to the uplink port (the router ports). Multicast data traffic is forwarded to uplink ports (the router ports). The operation of multicast IGMP snooping depends on the correct configuration of the upstream switch.
What is IGMP Snooping Cisco?
The IGMP snooping software examines IGMP protocol messages within a VLAN to discover which interfaces are connected to hosts or other devices interested in receiving this traffic.
Is IGMP Snooping Layer 3?
How does Cisco IOS interpret IGMPv3 membership reports?
Effectively, Cisco IOS software interprets all IGMPv3 membership reports for groups configured in dense, sparse, or bidirectional mode to be group membership reports and forwards traffic from all active sources onto the network. Interoperability with IGMP Snooping
How do I use IGMP V3?
Enable an IGMP Version 3 (IGMPv3) host stack so that the router can function as a multicast network endpoint or host. Enable routers to track each individual host that is joined to a particular group or channel in an IGMPv3 environment. Control access to an SSM network using IGMP extended access lists.
What is the IP IGMP proxy-service command used for?
The ip igmp proxy-service command is intended to be used with the ip igmp helper-address (UDL) command. In this example, the ip igmp proxy-service command is configured on loopback interface 0 to enable the forwarding of IGMP reports out the interface for all groups on interfaces registered through the ip igmp mroute-proxy command (see Step 7).
What is IGMPv3 host stack?
RFC 3376 defines IGMPv3. The IGMPv3 Host Stack feature enables devices to function as multicast network endpoints or hosts. The feature adds INCLUDE mode capability to the IGMPv3 host stack for Source Specific Multicast (SSM) groups.
