Multicast IP Addressing

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The multicast server uses multicast IP addresses to connect client computers with an associated transmission. This means that each client computer that is connected to a multicast transmission is listening on the multicast IP address that is associated with that transmission. You can allocate these IP addresses by using Multicast Address Dynamic Client Allocation Protocol (MADCAP) or by using the WDSServer service.
