Multicast Proxy for IGMP/MLD released

The iNET RG gladly announces a new open source software: mcproxy - a Multicast Proxy for IGMP/MLD

mcproxy is a free & open source implementation of the IGMP/MLD proxy function (see  RFC 4605) for Linux systems. It operates on the kernel tables for multicast routing and allows for multiple instantiations, as well as dynamically changing downstream interfaces.

The current design was motivated by research and IETF standardization activities in the MULTIMOB group (see  RFC 6224 and  draft-ietf-multimob-pmipv6-source)) and shall serve as a test and experimentation tool for the research community.

The initial release supports:

  • IGMPv2/MLDv1
  • multiple proxy instances
  • dynamic management of downstream interfaces
  • forwarding based on kernel routing tables
