IP-MADDRESS(8)                    Linux                   IP-MADDRESS(8)

NAME         top

       ip-maddress - multicast addresses management

SYNOPSIS         top

       ip [ OPTIONS ] maddress  { COMMAND | help }

       ip maddress [ add | del ] MULTIADDR dev NAME

       ip maddress show [ dev NAME ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.
