Reserved Multicast Group
The IP address range of 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 are reserved for multicasting on the local network only. For example, 126.96.36.199 is for all hosts on a local network segment and 188.8.131.52 is used to send RIP routing information to all RIP v2 routers on the same network segment. A multicast router will not forward a packet with the destination IP address within this range to other networks.
