I have a special situation where I have a host that does not send an IGMP join message but needs to receive a specific multicast address all the time. The multicast group address that this host needs to be part of does not continuously send packets just every once and a while. What I need is for the host to just receive the specified multicast address all of the time without having to do anything (IGMP join message).
Directly connected to the host is a 3550-SMI switch. Below is what I have tried but was unsuccessful in making work properly. I believe these commands made the port a static member but the host would still not receive the data without a join message. I have a small script that I can send a join message with manually and once I do this I then receive the multicast for a short time until it times out.

decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
