Enabling multicast on Cisco 2950 EI switches with no router

Hello,

I have an application that needs to use multicast in a computer lab area. I have decided to only enable multicast on two switches and block it from the rest of the network using the port storm control command on the 2950 EI switches. I have been doing some research and have been unable to find the command string for enabling multicast without a router. The only command that I can think to use is the "ip igmp snooping" command. There are no routers involved this will strictly be at layer 2, and only on 2 switches, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

To constrain multicast traffic, you will still need a router or a switch capable to act as an IGMP querier.

The following page was written for 6500 but you should get an idea

You can enter static mac table entries in the switches. Also, if you need enter in the router, you can use the static ARP entries.
