The IPv6 multicast address space covers the FF00::/8 range, and more specific addresses include the following:
- All nodes multicast – FF02::1
- All routers multicast – FF02::2
- OSPF DR routers – FF02::6
- EIGRP routers – FF02::A
- PIM routers – FF02::D
Note: All of the addresses above have a link-local scope.
In IPv6, IGMP is replaced by the Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) protocol, which is based on ICMPv6 behavior. MLDv1 is equivalent to IGMPv2, and MLDv2 is roughly equivalent to IGMPv3. MLD is the optional version to . . .
