NAMEramond - IPv6 Router Advertisement MONitor Daemon
SYNOPSISramond [ -c configfile ] [ -d ] ramond -h
DESCRIPTIONThis 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).
OPTIONSThe 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/etc/ramond.conf The system-wide configuration file to control the behaviour of ramond. See ramond.conf(5) for further details.
ENVIONMENTThis section details the environment variables set by ramond when it runs a user-configured script. PREFIX The advertised prefix, or null PREFIX_LEN The length of the advertised prefix, or null SOURCE_ADDR The IPv6 source address of the packet SOURCE_MAC The MAC source address of the packet INTERFACE The interface which the packet was received on
