Can a limited broadcast contain destination MAC address other than FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF?
If the answer is true, could you provide an example of a protocol that uses a packet like this.
Ok, to elaborate on this a little further and to show what I think of it:
Lets suppose we are sending an IP packet that is a limited broadcast packet. A limited broadcast packet has the IP Destination field filled with: 255.255.255.255. 255.255.255.255 means that the packet is destined to '_this_' _Local_ Area Network (L2 network). 255.255.255.255 informs the software crafting a frame wrapper for the packet, that the packet is destined to _this_ L2 network. To transfer an IP packet over the LAN network, I can use multiple protocols:
depending on what type of medium I want to transfer the packet through (or what L2 protocol I want to use, if multiple L2 protocols available for a medium?).
Now, as I can't really obtain L2 address of a host 255.255.255.255 (because this host does not exist), a logical move for the software crafting the L2 wrapper would be to assign 'a default' lower level (L2) broadcast address for the frame Destination field (whatever the L2 protocol is). This would be a logical move.
I've originally asked the question because I realized that, besides of Ethernet, there are also other L2 protocols I can use to transfer the packet. So if the question was formulated like: "Can a limited broadcast packet contain information about L2 broadcast address other than MAC FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF ?", the answer would be: yes. Because I can use L2 protocol other than the Ethernet.
Is my thinking correct on this?
