IP multicast is a simple broadcast technology that enables multiple applications to subscribe to a given IP address and port number and listen for messages. A multicast address is an IP address in the range from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168.
The valid range is from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199. The default value used by WebLogic Server is 188.8.131.52. You should avoid using multicast addresses in the range x.0.0.1
This address must be unique to this cluster and should not be shared by other applications.
The multicast port is used by cluster members to communicate with each other. Valid values are between 1 and 65535.
The new cluster will appear in the Summary of Clusters table.
