    Hi

    With IP4 its usually fairly easy to find out all the nodes on a LAN -
    you just ping the broadcast address and most will respond. But IP6
    doesn't support broadcast addresses, only multicast, so is there some
    standard multicast address I could use with ping6 to return all the
    IP6 nodes? Or would I have to use another method entirely?

    Thanks for any help
