switch#(conf) exit   (exit configuration mode)

Hi:

That's what I did.  I was in config mode.
Gives me invalid input at "snooping"

What type of image do you have EMI or SMI?  Check by doing a show version

The 3500XL switches do not support igmp snooping. Here is the link;

Really.  I've been instructed to turn on multicasting throughout the network.  I've got the 6506 and 6509 multicast enabled.  What good will it do if I can't do igmp snooping on the switches?  They are all 3500 or 3500XL.  Just got in some 2960s.  Any work arounds without replacing equipment?

You can use CGMP instead of IGMP, CGMP is supported


config t
cgmp leave-processing
end


See if that works

Check out the following doc
