rtquery - query routing daemons for their routing tables
rtquery [-np1] [-w timeout] [-r addr] [-a secret] host ...
rtquery -t op host ...
Rtquery is used to query a RIP network routing daemon, routed(1M) or
gated(1M), for its routing table by sending a request or poll command.
The routing information in any routing response packets returned is
displayed numerically and symbolically.
Rtquery by default uses the request command. When the -p option is
specified, rtquery uses the poll command, an undocumented extension to
the RIP specification supported by gated(1M). When querying gated(1M),
the poll command is preferred over the Request command because the
response is not subject to Split Horizon and/or Poisoned Reverse, and
because some versions of gated do not answer the Request command. Routed
does not answer the Poll command, but recognizes Requests coming from
rtquery and so answers completely.
Rtquery is also used to turn tracing on or off in routed.
-n Normally network and host numbers are displayed both symbolically
and numerically. The -n option displays only the numeric network
and host numbers.
-p Uses the Poll command to request full routing information from
gated(1M). This is an undocumented extension of the RIP protocol
supported only by gated(1M).
-1 query using RIP version 1 instead of RIP version 2.
changes the delay for an answer from each host. By default, each
host is given 15 seconds to respond.

change tracing, where op is one of the following. Requests from
processes not running with UID 0 or on distant networks are
generally ignored by the daemon except for a message in the system
log. gated(1M). is likely to ignore these debugging requests.
turn tracing on into the specified file. That file must
usually have been specified when the daemon was started or be
the same as a fixed name, often /etc/routed.trace.

off turns off tracing.
dump dumps the daemon's routing table to the current tracefile.
