		 Specify the number of hop limit.  By default, it depends on
		 the system default value.

		 Specify the interface name to use sending packets.  By	de-
		 fault,	kernel will decide.

     -s	scope	 (IPv6 only) Specify the hint in order to decision of source
		 IP address to send packets.  By default, global scope is ap-
		 plied.	 If you	don't specify interface, mcastsend ignores
		 this option.  scope takes one of the following	numeric:

		 1    node local
		 2    link local
		 5    site local
		 14   global
