This memo describes the interoperability problems and issues that can arise when a mixed deployment of IGMPv3 and IGMPv2 capable hosts and routers are interconnected by a switch with IGMP snooping capabilities. The memo also covers MLDv2 for IPv6. It is intended as an accompanying document to the IGMPv3 and MLDv2 specifications.
