MLD6QUERY(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		  MLD6QUERY(8)

NAME
     mld6query -- send multicast listener query

SYNOPSIS
     mld6query [-dgr] intface [maddr]

DESCRIPTION
     The mld6query utility sends an IPv6 multicast listener discovery (MLD)
     query packet toward the specified multicast address, maddr, toward	inter-
     face intface.  If you omit	maddr, linklocal all nodes multicast ad-
     dress(ff02::1) is used.

     After sending a query, mld6query waits for	replies	for at most 10 sec-
     onds.  If a reply is returned, mld6query prints it	with its type and then
     waits for another reply.

     This program is provided only for debugging.  It is not necessary for
     normal use.

     With -g, mld6query	will transmit a	General	Query instead of the default
     Multicast-Address-Specific	Query.	With -d, mld6query will	transmit MLD
     done packet instead of MLD	query packet.  With -r,	similarly, MLD report
     packet will be transmitted.  -dr options are for debugging	purposes only.

EXIT STATUS
     The program exits with 0 on success, non-zero on failures.

HISTORY
     The mld6query utility first appeared in WIDE/KAME IPv6 protocol stack
     kit.

BUGS
     The mld6query utility does	not take care of multicast addresses which
     have non link-local scope.
