This proposes an update on RFC 4191 in order to define new Router Advertisement options for configuring next hop routes on the mobile or fixed nodes. Using these options, an operator can easily configure nodes with multiple interfaces (or otherwise multi-homed) to enable them to select the routes to a destination. Each option is defined together with definitions of host and router behaviors.
