NAME

ramond - IPv6 Router Advertisement MONitor Daemon  

SYNOPSIS

ramond [ -c configfile ] [ -d ]

ramond -h  

DESCRIPTION

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 ENVIRONMENT section for details).  

OPTIONS

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

-c configfile
Sets the path to the ramond configuration file. Default is /etc/ramond.conf
-d
Do not daemonize.
-h
Show summary of options.
 

FILES
