Hi Guys! I have a ghost server in a network environment that is being built so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles. How do I configure a standard router for IGMP to multicast so symantec will work. Its a Vigor 2820 series, its GUI and here are the options it gives me for IGMP
Enable IGMP Proxy
IGMP Proxy is to act as a multicast proxy for hosts on the LAN side. Enable IGMP Proxy, if you
will access any multicast group. But this function take no affect when Bridge Mode is enabled.
Enable IGMP Snooping
Enable IGMP Snooping, multicast traffic is only forwarded to ports that have members of that group.
Disable IGMP snooping, multicast traffic is treated in the same manner as broadcast traffic.
Which do I select? Snooping or proxy? and how do I configure it from there? I have never done this before
