This draft defines a way for multiple routers that are communicating on a single link to exchange routing information using Router Advertisements. This allows moving networks to communicate with each other through auto-configured routers. This document specifies a new flag for the Router Information option from ICMPv6 Router Advertisement messages and specifies how routers must process such options.
