Class overview

The Multicast Listener Discovery Protocol (MLD) Protocol for IPv6 manages multicast address listening for a given IPv6 host.

This class support two MLD Protocol versions:

MLDv1
RFC2710
MLDv2
RFC3810. Version 2 of MLD adds support for "source filtering", that is, the ability for a system to report interest in receiving packets only from specific source addresses, or from all but specific source addresses, sent to a particular multicast address. That information may be used by multicast routing protocols to avoid delivering multicast packets from specific sources to networks where there are no interested receivers.
