Hello,


As long as you enable IGMP snooping and PC 3 & 4 join the multicast group,

only they will get the data (on a multicast capable switch). If the switch

is not capable of handling multicast traffic, then it will treat it as

broadcast and all ports (or all PC's) will get the traffic.


Hope this helps.

Dear Gaurang,



          With the help of Private VLAN, we can  isolate the PC's in the same VLAN..

This following links will be helpful for configuring Private VLAN
