Section 3.11. Required Addresses


3.11. Required Addresses

The standard specifies that each host must assign the following addresses to identify itself:

  • Its link-local address for each interface

  • Any assigned unicast and anycast addresses

  • The loopback address

  • The all-nodes multicast address

  • Solicited-node multicast address for each of its assigned unicast and anycast addresses

  • Multicast addresses of all other groups to which the host belongs

A router needs to recognize all of the previous address, plus the following:

  • The subnet-router anycast address for the interfaces for which it is configured to act as a router on each link

  • All anycast addresses with which the router has been configured

  • The all-routers multicast address

  • Multicast addresses of all other groups to which the router belongs
