IPv4 Multicast Address Ranges

137 0 0 0


It is important to remember the multicast addressing ranges when configuring multicast networks.

 

Range and description of IPv4 multicast addresses

Class D Address Range

Description

224.0.0.0-224.0.0.255

Permanent multicast group addresses that are   reserved by the IANA for routing protocols. The addresses identify a group of   network devices and are not used for multicast forwarding. 

224.0.1.0-231.255.255.255

233.0.0.0-238.255.255.255

ASM group addresses that are valid on the entire   network.

232.0.0.0-232.255.255.255

Default SSM group addresses that are valid on the   entire network.

239.0.0.0-239.255.255.255

Administrative multicast addresses that are valid   only in the local administrative domain. Different administrative domains can   use the same administrative multicast addresses.


 For multicast services the we can use the ASM/SSM range, NOT the administrative range.
