I'm writting a dissector for the modludp64 protocol. It's work, this is cool and I release it in few days. But before I want to add some features. To distinguish messages, I need to know if the destination ip address is unicast or multicast, but I don't know how to retreive this informations.

Someone can help me.

This should result in TRUE for multicast addresses (untested YMMV).

((pinfo->net_dst.type == AT_IPv4) && (((*(guint8 *)(pinfo-> & 0xF0) == 0xE0)) || ((pinfo->net_dst.type == AT_IPv6) && ((*(guint8 *)(pinfo-> == 0xFF))))
