Easy Cast du Multi Hub (ecmh) is a networking daemon that acts as a full IPv6 MLDv1 multicast router. This allows IPv6 multicast routing on Linux. It will also allow IPv4 to IPv6 and IPv6 to IPv4 translation of multicast traffic, allowing multicast where it is not yet available otherwise. This code runs on the SixXS POPs, where this daemon runs on the POPs and let it easily do multicast IPv6. This allows the m6bone to grow and provide IPv6 multicast to end users. Users can deploy this software to enable their networks with multicast.
