Internet Group Management Protocol - is used by IP hosts to report their host group memberships to any immediately neighboring multicast routers. IGMP is a integral part of IP. It must be implemented by all hosts conforming to level 2 of the IP multicasting specification. IGMP messages are encapsulated in IP datagrams, with an IP protocol number of 2.Version 3 of IGMP adds support for source filtering. This indicates the ability for a system to report interest in receiving packets;only from specific source addresses, or from all but specific source addresses, sent to a particular multicast address.

Multicast Address Resolution Server - Multicasting is the process whereby a source host or protocol entity sends a packet to multiple destinations simultaneously using a single, local 'transmit' operation. ATM is being utilized as a new link layer technology to support a variety of protocols, including IP.

Address family (2 Bytes)
Protocol identification (7 Bytes)
Reserved (3 Bytes)
Checksum (2 Bytes)
Extensions offset (2 Bytes)
Operation code (2 Bytes)
Type and length of source ATM number (1 Byte)
Type and length of source ATM subaddress (1 Byte)
Structure of the MARS header in 8 bit lines.


Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) - is a protocol for efficiently routing to multicast groups that may span wide-area (and inter-domain) internets. The protocol is not dependent on any particular unicast routing protocol, and is designed to support sparse groups.

Routing Information Protocol - is used by Berkeley 4BSD UNIX systems to exchange routing information. Implemented by a UNIX program, RIP2 derives from an earlier protocol of the same name developed by Xerox. RIP2 is an extension of the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) intended to expand the amount of useful information carried in the RIP2 messages and to add a measure of security.

RIPng for IPv6

Routing Information Protocol version 6 - RIPng for IPv6 is a routing protocol for the IPv6 Internet. It is based on protocols and algorithms used extensively in the IPv4 Internet.

Resource ReSerVation setup Protocol - Designed for an integrated services Internet. It is used by a host on behalf of an application data stream to request a specific quality of service from the network for particular data streams or flows. It is also used by routers to deliver QoS control requests to all nodes.

Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol - Specifies an election protocol that dynamically assigns responsibility for a virtual router to one of the VRRP routers on a LAN. The VRRP router controlling the IP address(es) associated with a virtual router is called the Master, and forwards packets sent to these IP addresses. The election process provides dynamic fail over in the forwarding responsibility should the Master become unavailable. This allows any of the virtual router IP addresses on the LAN to be used as the default first hop router by end-hosts. The advantage gained from using VRRP is a higher availability default path without requiring configuration of dynamic routing or router discovery protocols on every end-host. This protocol is intended for use with IPv4 routers only. VRRP packets are sent encapsulated in IP packets.
