enable mld snooping with-proxy


Enables the MLD snooping proxy.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

Enabling the proxy allows the switch to suppress the duplicate join requests on a group to forward to the connected Layer 3 switch. The proxy also suppresses unnecessary MLD leave messages so that they are forwarded only when the last member leaves the group.

This command can be used for troubleshooting purpose. It should be enabled for normal network operation. The command does not alter the snooping setting.
