A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the IP Version 6 Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: Default Router Preferences, More-Specific Routes and 
                          Load Sharing
	Author(s)	: R. Draves, B. Hinden

	Pages		: 13

This document describes two changes to Neighbor Discovery. The first 
change is an optional extension to Router Advertisement messages for 
communicating default router preferences and more-specific routes 
from routers to hosts. This improves the ability of hosts to pick an 
appropriate router, especially when the host is multi-homed and the 
routers are on different links. The preference values and specific 
routes advertised to hosts require administrative configuration; 
they are not automatically derived from routing tables. The second 
change is a mandatory modification of the conceptual sending 
algorithm to support load-sharing among equivalent routers.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
