The available IGMP Snooping versions are v2 and v3. You can select either or in the Version drop down.

You can enable IGMP Snooping for any VLAN by selecting the corresponding checkbox next to the VLAN ID as seen in Figure 3. You can manage your switch's VLANS in the Port Settings page.

Click Save Switch Settings when you have finished modifying settings.
