Hi, we have a project together with a company, which uses the Alljoyn Framework. In their application they use multicasting on 224.0.0.x addresses and argue, that these addresses can not be changed. But in definitions of the IANA these addresses are NOT meant for application use, but multicast administration. Although routers, i.e. mrouted, do not route such addresses. Is it true, that Alljoin restricts the application to use 224.0.0.x addresses? Is there a chance to route/forward 224.0.0.x addresses at all?

Thank you very much.
