socket_mchopcount6(3)	   Library Functions Manual	 socket_mchopcount6(3)

NAME
       socket_mchopcount6 - set	multicast hop count

SYNTAX
       #include	<socket.h>

       int socket_mchopcount6(int s,char TTL);

DESCRIPTION
       socket_mchopcount6  sets	 the  maximum  hop count of outgoing multicast
       packets on the socket s.	 Each router decrements	the packet  hop	 count
       by one and discards the packet if it reaches zero.  Setting the maximum
       hop count to 1, for example, will limit the packet propagation  to  the
       LAN.

       If  something  goes wrong, socket_mchopcount6 returns -1, setting errno
       appropriately.
