In Any Source Multicast (ASM) mode, a receiver for a given multicast group will receive all streams from any source sending to that multicast group.

If this is not the behavior you want, you need to look at Source Specific Multicast (SSM), where the receiver not only the multicast group that it wants to join but also the specific source. This requires the receiver to support IGMPv3.

Can we make it Source specific through putting "ip igmp static grooup and source" command on interface
