       ip6rtrd - IPv6 routing daemon

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

       Directs	the  ip6rtrd  daemon  to  parse	 the configuration file. If no
       errors occur, ip6rtrd exits and returns a zero (0)  status.  Otherwise,
       it exits with a non-zero status.	 Enables additional debugging informa‐
       tion, such as bad packets received, to be logged.  The  ip6rtrd	daemon
       remains under control of the host that started it; therefore, an inter‐
       rupt 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.

       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.

       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	broad‐
       casts  RIPng packets with hop counts set to infinity over the appropri‐
       ate interfaces.


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

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

       Commands: ifconfig(8), ip6_setup(8).

       Daemons: nd6hostd(8).

       Files: ip6rtrd.conf(4).
