enable igmp snooping with-proxy

enable igmp snooping with-proxy {{vr} vr_name}


Enables the IGMP snooping proxy. The default setting is enabled.

Syntax Description


Specifies a VR.



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 IGMP 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.

This feature can be enabled when IGMPv3 is enabled; however, it is not effective for IGMPv3.


The following command enables the IGMP snooping proxy:

enable igmp snooping with-proxy


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
