NAME

nsctl - manage running l2tpns instance  

SYNOPSIS

nsctl [-d] [-h host[:port]] [-t timeout] command [arg ...]  

DESCRIPTION

nsctl sends commands to a running l2tpns process. It provides both for the loading or unloading of plugins and also the management of sessions via functions provided by those plugins.  

OPTIONS

-d
Enable debugging output.
-h host[:port]
The host running l2tpns that should receive the message. By default the message is sent to UDP port 1702 on localhost.
-t timeout
Timeout in seconds to wait for a response from the server.
 

COMMANDS

The first argument specifies the command to send to l2tpns . The following commands are as defined:
load_plugin plugin
Load the named plugin.
unload_plugin plugin
Unload the named plugin.
help
Each loaded plugin is queried for what commands it supports and the synopsis for each is output.

Any other value of command (and args if any) are sent to l2tpns as-is, to be passed to each plugin which registers a plugin_control function in turn (in which it may be acted upon).
