IGMP on Fathom-X


It appears the Fathom-X is implementing a version Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). Is this correct? In order to get multicast data through the Fathom-X, I’m having to send periodic IGMP-Join commands from multicast test tool on the client at approximately a 4-minute interval. Otherwise the data-stream will be interrupted. Is there a way to disable IGMP? Some of my hardware isn’t readily compatible.

Ben, I am not sure about this. I am travelling right now. I will look into it when I get back and let you know what I find.




Have you had a chance to look into this?

Hi Ben, the data sheet for the module does not make any mention of IGMP, or the possibility of reconfiguring the module. The manufacturer has also advised us that the modules support multicast. Can you tell me more about the tools you are using to test this?
