Unformatted text preview: d on many factors: which type of broadcast address, configuration parameters, and so on. A class D IP address is called a multicast group address. It is converted to an Ethernet address by placing its lower 23 bits into a fixed Ethernet address. The mapping is not unique, requiring additional filtering by one of the protocol modules.

Broadcasting and Multicasting 12.1 Does broadcasting increase the amount of network traffic? 12.2 Consider 50 hosts on an Ethernet: 20 running TCP/IP and 30 running some other protocol suite. How are broadcasts from one protocol suite handled by hosts running the other protocol suite? 12.3 You login to a Unix system that you've never used before and want to find the subnetdirected broadcast address for all attached interfaces that support broadcasting. How can you do this? 12.4 If we ping the broadcast address with a large packet size, as in sun % ping 140.252.13.63 1472 PING 140.252.13.63; 1472 data bytes 1480 bytes from sun (140.252.13.33): icmp_seq=0. time=6. ms 1480 bytes from svr4 (140.252.13.34): icmp_seq=0. time=84. ms 1480 bytes from bsdi (140.252.13.35): icmp_seq=0. time=128. ms it works, but increasing the packet size by 1 byte gives us the following error: sun % ping 140.252.13.63 1473 PING 140.252.13.63: 1473 data bytes sendto: Message too long What's going on? 12.5 Redo Exercise 10.6 assuming the eight RIP messages are multicast instead of broadcast (assume RIP Version 2 is being used). What changes? file:///D|/Documents%20and%20Settings/bigini/Doc...omenet2run/tcpip/tcp-ip-illustrated/broadcas.htm (12 of 12) [12/09/2001 14.47.00] Chapter 13. IGMP: Internet Group Management Protocol IGMP: Internet Group Management Protocol 13.1 Introduction Section 12.4 provided an overview of IP multicasting and described how class D IP addresses are mapped into Ethernet addresses. We briefly mentioned how multicasting occurs on a single physical network, but said complications occur when mu...
