Multicasting in poin-to-point network

Hi,

What is the reason behind sending all OSPF packets as multicast in point-to-point network , though its directly connected router ?

Thanks,

Vijay

This alleviates the need to have to configure a neighbor address. Otherwise, which unicast address would you send the hellos to.

Hope this helps,
