In certain topologies, it is not necessary to run a multicast rout- ing protocol. It is sufficient to learn group membership informa- tion and simply forward based upon that information. This draft describes a mechanism for forwarding based solely upon IGMP member- ship information. This document is a product of an individual. Comments are solicited and should be addressed to the author.
