A common address used to direct (broadcast) a message to all terminals in a network.
A multicast address identifying the group of all stations on a network.
a special type of group address which applies to all of the stations on the network
IP address used to denote a packet that should be received by every host on a network, consisting of the target network address and a host address of all ones (e.g. for a class C network 192.168.36.0 the broadcast address is 192.168.36.255).
An address used to broadcast a datagram to all hosts on a given network using UDP or ICMP protocol.
IPv4 network addresses with the host portion of the address having all zeroes (10.50.0.0) or all one bits (10.50.255.255). A packet that is sent to a broadcast address from a machine on the local network is delivered to all machines on that network.
An address reserved for sending to all stations on a network simultaneously.
The broadcast address is a standard TCP/IP address which transmits the message to all machines within a local subnet.
A special type of networking address that denotes all machines on a given network segment.
Special address reserved for sending a message to all stations. Generally, a broadcast address is a MAC destination address of all ones. Compare with multicast address and unicast address. See also broadcast.
In computer networking, a broadcast address is an IP address that allows information to be sent to all machines on a given subnet rather than a specific machine. The exact notation can vary by operating system, but the standard is laid out in RFC 919.
