Hello,

A Unicast address identifies the MAC address of individual LAN or NIC card. The source address of an Ethernet frame will always be a unicast address.

A multicast address forwards a frame to a subset of devices in the same LAN. . IEEE ethernet multicast address all the time begin with 0100.5E with hexadecimal arrange. The last three bytes can be any arrangement.

A broadcast address sends a frame to all devices in the same LAN. Multicast and broadcast addresses are limited to a LAN or network segment.

Thank You,

John Major.
