     mld6query — send multicast listener query

     mld6query [-dr] intface [maddr]

     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
     address(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 -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.

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

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

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