I have debian based server where I need to subscribe a multicast. After doing it with headless mpalyer I can see the following:

root@ca1:~# netstat -g
IPv6/IPv4 Group Memberships
Interface       RefCnt Group
--------------- ------ ---------------------
lo              1
eth0            1
eth1            1      X.X.X.X

where X.X.X.X is require multicast address/

In order to leave that multicast group I should send 0x17 igmp packet and this is the question, how can I do with some existing tools and not doing it C/python code?
