The route6d is a routing daemon which supports RIP over
-a Enables aging of the statically defined routes.
With this option,
any statically defined routes will be removed
updates arrive as if the routes are received at the
startup of route6d.
This option makes route6d log route changes

When advertising routes, route6d filters specific

interface list if1[,if2...]. route6d creates a
static route to

-D Enables extensive output of debugging messages.

instructs route6d to run in foreground mode (i.e.,
it does not
become a daemon process).
-h Disables split horizon processing.
-l By default, route6d will not exchange site local
routes for safety
reasons. This is because the semantics of site
space are rather vague, as the specification is
worked on, and there is no good way to define the
boundary. With -l, route6d will exchange site local
well. It must not be used on site boundary routers,
since -l assumes
that all interfaces are in the same site.
Filter incoming routes from interfaces if1,[if2...].
will accept incoming routes that are in
prefix/preflen. If multiple
-L options are specified, all routes that
match any of the
options are accepted. ::/0 is treated specially as
route, not ``any route that has longer prefix length
equal to 0''. If you would like to accept any
route, specify no
-L option. For example, with ``-L 3ffe::/16,if1 -L
route6d will accept the default route and routes in
test address range, but no others.
-n Do not update the kernel routing table.

Restrict route advertisement toward interfaces specified by

-q Makes route6d use listen-only mode. No advertisement is sent.
-s Makes route6d advertise the statically defined

-t tag Attach the route tag tag to originated route entries. tag can be
decimal, octal prefixed by 0, or hexadecimal prefixed by 0x.
Upon receipt of signal SIGINT or SIGUSR1, route6d will dump
internal state into /var/run/route6d_dump.
/var/run/route6d_dump contains the internal state dumps
route6d receives a SIGINT or SIGUSR1
G. Malkin and R. Minnear, RIPng for IPv6, RFC 2080, January
route6d uses the advanced IPv6 API, defined in RFC 2292, for
with peers using link-local addresses.
Internally route6d embeds interface identifiers into bits 32
to 63 of
link-local addresses (fe80::xx and ff02::xx) so they will be
the internal state dump file (/var/run/route6d_dump).
Routing table manipulation differs from IPv6 implementation
Currently route6d obeys the WIDE Hydrangea/KAME
IPv6 kernel, and
will not be able to run on other platforms.
Currently, route6d does not reduce the rate of the triggered
consecutive updates arrive.
