Networking: Add IGMP proxy

Implement a simpe IGMP proxy so that IPTV at least from T-Home Entertain can be received. This is different from standard Multicast as it only to pass the asg and not dynamically communicate or register with other multicast servers

        in this day and age of ip tv and online content IGMP Proxy is a must.
        i have been with this product for a long time since ASG7 would hate to have to change to another provider/product for such a simple must have service.
        Come on guys this is a must have feature.

        Yes, this definitely needs to happen! I think Sophos UTM is a great product that works well for all my other firewall needs, but not having support for IGMP proxy is a bit of a thorn in the side. Really hoping to see this feature soon, to enable the passing of IPTV through the UTM firewall.

        Frustrating part is that the code to do this is already present in the UTM and there's even a German language forum thread outlining how to set it up, you just void your warranty if you do.

        come on Guys! 6 years and this has not been addressed? google Chrome uses this and our customers have TV's in patient areas which rely on this! Lets get this done.

        We have more and more healthcare customers who bring media to their patients bed. So in the house IPTV is the medium, which is still mostly self-powered by cable or satellite tv. Here are operator models desired, which rely on external IPTV providers.

        I would like to see this implemented so AT&T Uverse IPTV can be watched from inside the network instead of placed on the AT&T Modem. It is frustrating to have to create a bypass when this should be done within the UTM Gateway

        I would really appreciate seeing this feature implemented soon. VDSL availability is increasing very fast and T-Entertain is becoming more and more popular in Germany. Since this feature is available on other platforms, it's a missing checkmark on the feature comparison chart. It shouldn't take too much effort to implent it. Go for it !

        Somehow I doubt we'll see this one anytime soon. IGMP proxying so far has only been used on any scale for IPTV but not much else. And as IPTV is almost exclusively a consumer product, a business oriented UTM is probably not going to offer a feature only used by consumers, especially if it's a feature not many paying customers use.

        Wish to get this feature too. But seems like they are not interested on it at all.

        I had to implement a separate VLAN for this at home. Would love to manage it over UTM. No news?

        Asked in beta 9.2 forum, this won't be in the release...
        When will this be implemented? It's even present in tomato or pfsense for years - that shouldn't be that an issue to add it to UTM???
