What's IGMP?
Last Updated 9 years ago

It's used to establish host memberships in particular multicast groups on a single network. The mechanisms of the protocol allow a host to inform its local router, using Host Membership Reports, which it wants to receive messages addressed to a specific multicast group. 
All hosts conforming to level 2 of the IP multicasting specification require IGMP.
