I'm kinda new to networking. I have a small question, how can I determine what type of casting (unicast, multicast or broadcast) is it based on IPv4 address. For example: 184.108.40.206
I tried to search up but I still don't understand. Thank you.
For IPv4, unicast addresses are in the
220.127.116.11 range*, multicast addresses are in
18.104.22.168 address range.
*Broadcast addresses are more complicated. There is the limited broadcast address (
255.255.255.255) that works on all networks, but there is also a network broadcast address that is the last address in a network.
For a full explanation of IPv4 network addressing, see this two-part answer.
