That's what the RFC says. 00-00-5E-00-01-VRID .
:The other MAC that can me used is the real MAC address of the :interface, but this seems not compliant with VRRP RFC.
Hey, I only know what the RFC tells us. But you've read the RFC, so I'm not sure why you are asking this question. Is there something particular about using the virtual MAC that is troubling you? Some aspect of it that you do not understand the RFC on? Or were you looking for a way to impliment VRRP -without- using the correct virtual MAC, such as for use in a setup where you could generate fairly arbitrary IP packets but were not able to control the source MAC ?
