[radvd-devel-l] radvd multicast address

I'm experimenting with the multicast address of radvd at the send.c file. By default, the multicast address is set at ff02::1. ff02::1 is a link-local multicast address. 

In my network, I'm using the 2001:106:2700::/64 addressing scheme, which is a global address. I've tried changing the multicast address in send.c to ff0e::1 & reinstalling radvd. The problem comes here: My other PCs in the network could receive the RA(from Ethereal), but they did not autoconfig into the new IP address. The other PCs could only autoconfig when the multicast address in send.c was at ff02::1.

Am I missing something out?

Thanks & Regards,
