I have 3 hosts (h1, h2, h3) on my LAN segment and a router with IGMP enabled.
Now the host h3 wants to join the multicast group (126.96.36.199 say)
- Host h3 will send a membership report to 188.8.131.52 (correct/incorrect)
- All other hosts (h1, h2) will suppress their Membership report as they are also listening to this group (correct/incorrect)
- How does the router receive this request which was initiated in part 1 (because the router is listening ONLY at all router address-184.108.40.206)?
