Does anyone have any information on the following two IP's 224.0.0.1 and 224.0.0.2? Are these reserved addresses?

Reserved IP

They are multicast addresses:

multicast is a scheme for using ip addresses 224.0.0.0 through 239.255.255.255 to send the same data to several machines simultaneously.
Addresses between 224.0.0.0 and 224.0.0.255 are reserved for maintenance protocols and aren't forwarded off your subnet.
RFC-1060 assigns some ip addresses, which may be found by typing "host -l mcast.net".
