ip-maddress(8) multicast addresses management


ip [ OPTIONS ] maddress { COMMAND | help }

ip maddress [ add | del ] MULTIADDR dev NAME

ip maddress show [ dev NAME ]


maddress objects are multicast addresses.

ip maddress show - list multicast addresses

dev NAME (default)
the device name.

ip maddress add - add a multicast address
ip maddress delete - delete a 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.

address LLADDRESS (default)
the link-layer multicast address.

dev NAME
the device to join/leave this multicast address.
