Multicast addresses management.
maddress can be abbreviated to m or maddr
ip maddress add - add a multicast address.
ip maddress delete - delete a multicast address.
ip maddress show - list multicast addresses.
Syntax ip maddr [ add | del ] MULTIADDR dev STRING ip maddr show [ dev STRING ] Key address LLADDRESS (default) The link layer multicast address. dev NAME The device to join/leave this multicast address.
These commands attach/detach a static link layer multicast address to listen on the interface.
Note that it is impossible to join protocol multicast groups statically.
This command only manages link layer addresses.
“Those who flee temptation generally leave a forwarding address” ~ Lane Olinghouse
