Hi Ambarisha,

Apart from the Nmap branch David mentioned, we are also trying to add
full IPv6 support to Nping. I'm currently working on this branch:
/nmap-exp/luis/nmap-icmpv6/nping, which mainly deals with ICMPv6.

Basically, the most important thing right now is to get the "libnetutil"
in David's branch, working. We need to be able to list system interfaces
in all supported OS (Win, Linux, BSD, Mac, etc), and also, figure out
how to chose an interface and an IPv6 source address, based on the
target address and the local routing tables. Have a look at the code in
/nmap-exp/david/nmap-ipv6/libnetutil. If you could work on this, it
would be great (not an easy task though).
