              Specify the interface to use for outgoing multicast datagrams.

       To  send  datagrams  to IPv4 multicast address 239.1.1.1 and port 12345
       with a TTL of 3:

       $ mcsender -t3 239.1.1.1:12345

       To send datagrams to IPv4 multicast address 239.1.1.1  and  port  12345
       with a TTL of 3 out of interface eth1:

       $ mcsender -ieth1 -t3 239.1.1.1:12345

       To send datagrams to IPv6 multicast address ff15::1 and port 12345 with
       a hop limit of 3:

       $ mcsender -t3 ff15::1:12345

       To send datagrams to IPv6 multicast address ff15::1 and port 12345 with
