NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ip6rtrd - IPv6 routing daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/ip6rtrd [-dDm] [-l logfile] [configfile]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Enables  additional  debugging  information,  such  as bad
       packets received, to be logged. The ip6rtrd daemon remains
       under  control  of the host that started it; therefore, an
       interrupt from the controlling host stops the ip6rtrd process.
   Same  as the -d option, but does not run as a daemon.
  Specifies a  log  file  into  which  ip6rtrd  writes
       information  about  its actions. The log contains information
 about any changes to the routing tables and a history
       of recent route change messages sent and received that are
       related to changed routes. If you do  not  specify  a  log
       file,  information  is  logged  to stdout.  Specifies that
       ip6rtrd is running in a location where mobile nodes  might
       be present.  The daemon will immediately respond to Router
       Solicitation (RS) packets in  order  to  improve  movement
       detection of the mobile nodes.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ip6rtrd  daemon  sends IPv6 Router Advertisement (RA)
       packets of the Neighbor Discovery Protocol. These  packets
       enable  any listening host to autoconfigure itself without
       manual  intervention.  In  addition,  you  can   configure
       ip6rtrd to send and process RIPng messages.

       At  startup, the ip6rtrd daemon reads its default configuration
 file for startup information. If you used ip6_setup
       to  configure  IPv6 on your system, the configuration file
       is /etc/ip6rtrd.conf. You can specify an alternate configuration
 file by using the configfile parameter.

   Signals    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  following signals have the specified effect when sent
       to the ip6rtrd process using the kill(1) command: Displays
       internal  routing  tables. If a log file is specified, the
       routing information  is  logged  to  it.   Terminates  the
       ip6rtrd  process.  Before  exiting, the daemon removes any
       system state that was configured by the daemon,  including
       default  routers  and  on-link prefixes.  In addition, the
       daemon broadcasts RIPng packets with  hop  counts  set  to
       infinity over the appropriate interfaces.


              Do  not  use  SIGKILL to terminate the ip6rtrd process,
 as this may leave the system's IPv6  configuration
 in an inconsistent state.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Do  not  run  the nd6hostd and ip6rtrd daemons on the same
       host as this may produce unpredictable results.
