Which version of IGMP do Endura products use?

Issue

The customer is configuring their switch to use IGMP snooping and would like to know which version to use.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

Endura video management system

Cause

IGMP has three versions -- 1, 2, and 3.

Resolution

Endura viewing stations, by default, will send IGMP version 3 messages. However, all versions of IGMP are backwards compatible. So, you can configure your network equipment to use any version of IGMP and it will still work. However, older versions of IGMP are not as efficient as Version 3.
