Does an S series switch support the multicast static route port

1

The switch enabled with IGMP snooping forwards multicast packets to the multicast router only through the router port after receiving IGMP Report messages. The router port is dynamically learned by the switch after the interface receives a General Query message or a PIM Hello packet from the multicast router. If the multicast router cannot send IGMP General Query messages, the router port must be statically configured. S series excluding the S1700 and E series switches support the static router port. You can use the igmp-snooping static-router-port command in the interface view.

Do S series switches support static multicast routes
For S series switches, static multicast routes are supported only by S series modular switches, S3700EI, S3700HI, S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI. You can run the igmp static-group command to configure a static multicast group, and the ip rpf-route-static command to configure a static multicast route.

Do S series switches support static multicast MAC addresses
S series switches (except the S1700) support static multicast MAC addresses in V100R006 and later versions. However, the support for this function varies depending on switch models. - S2700SI/S2700EI: not supported - S3700SI/S3700EI: not supported - S5710-C-LI: not supported - S5700SI: supported in V200R003 and later versions

Which Huawei switches support static multicast router ports
Currently, all the switches support static router interfaces. After Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping is enabled on a switch, the switch forwards IGMP Report messages to an upstream multicast router only through the router port. A router port is dynamically learned by the switch after the interface receives a General Query message or PIM Hello message from the upstream multicast router. If the multicast router cannot send IGMP General Query messages, the router port must be statically configured.
