    Hi,

    My ipv6 interface has 3 addresses - link-local , site-local & global
    one.
    clearly when connecting to global-scope destination, I will use the my
    global address as the source, but which one to use as a source when:

    connecting to destination on link (global / site-local / link-local)?

    connecting to destination on the site, but not on-link (global /
    site-local)?

    Thanks,
    wd.

    Hello,
    I think what you´re looking for is descriped in RFC3484
    "Default Address Selection for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)"
