This manual page documents briefly the ramond command.
ramond is a daemon program monitoring IPv6 router advertisement packets.
When an advert is reveived, a configurable action occurs.
ramond was designed to "clear" (by sending spoofed zero lifetime adverts) rogue routes sent by users running 6to4 gateways on a campus network.
Actions are scriptable.
Almost all the available information is passed to a script via environmental variables (see the

The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, without long options.
A summary of options is included below.
