multicast-router-interface (MLD Snooping)


Hierarchy Level


Statically configure the interface as a multicast-router interface—that is, an interface that faces towards a multicast router or other MLD querier.


If the specified interface is a trunk port, the interface becomes a multicast-router interface for all VLANs configured on the trunk port. In addition, all unregistered multicast packets, whether they are IPv4 or IPv6 packets, are forwarded to the multicast router interface, even if the interface is configured as a multicast-router interface only for MLD snooping.
