About Multicast ...

Basically, Multicast and the MBONE broadcasts real-time audio and video over the net. For example, computer conferences and NASA shuttle missions have been broadcasted live over the net. According to ivan, another ccs student:

Multicasting is basically a protocal extension somewhere in between broadcasts(to every host), and unicast(to one host). The idea is that you have a group of hosts that reside on an IP address, the addresses start at 224.0.0.0. Then you speak to that single IP address, and all the hosts in the group get your packets
