Mcproxy - Multicast Proxy for IGMP/MLD
Mcproxy is a free & open source implementation of the IGMP/MLD proxy function (see RFC 4605) for Linux systems. It operates on the kernel tables for multicast routing and allows for multiple instantiations, as well as dynamically changing downstream interfaces.
The current design was motivated by research and IETF standardization activities in the MULTIMOB group (see RFC 6224, RFC 7287, and RFC 7411) and shall serve as a test and experimentation tool for the research community.
