Dear All,



As I was studying about IPV6 neighbor discovery mechanism, in one of the article I saw that the unsolicited router advertisements sent to all hosts multicast address is harmful as it would lead to possible DOS attacks. Hence solicited router advertisements in response to router solicitation are acceptable.


So my doubt is if this is the case when any configuration changes are being done in router, how does it alerts all nodes. Thanks in advance for your replies
