TOPIC: Valid Multicast IP Addresses

Valid Multicast IP Addresses 11 years 4 months ago #24636

Is there any such thing as a Multicast Broadcast address?

For example, when I use Wireshark to capture traffic, I see a Destination IP Multicast Address of which should be converted to a MAC address of 01:00:5e:40:80:ff.

But Wireshark displays the destination packet as a Broadcast ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff.

1. Is this a WireShark interpretation error and is there a patch/fix for it?

2. Are there any octets in a Multicast Destination IP Address, that when specified as .255, would indicate a Broadcast address?
