RFC 3559            Multicast Address Allocation MIB           June 2003

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for

   managing multicast address allocation in a protocol-independent

   manner, as well as for managing specific protocols used in allocating

   multicast addresses.  The protocol-independent objects in this MIB

   apply to all multicast address allocation servers (MAASs) and

   clients, as described in [ARCH], including those that allocate

   source-specific multicast addresses for the local machine.

   The protocol-specific obj...
