Re: ip add

Hi Sham

Class D (multicast) and class E (reserved) do not have subnet masks. Class D multicast addresses are flat in that they do not have a network and host portion defined by a subnet mask. Please see attached link for more details

127.0.0.1 is convention and it is recognised as the loopback across all Operating systems.
