dgclient - Request an AmprNet Dynamic Route Server to configure a route
dgclient [-t msgtimer] [-k password] [-p port] [-d] <server>
dgclient periodically sends a specially formatted UDP datagram to the
supplied server which is assumed to be an AmprNet Dynamic Gateway Route
Server. The datagram supplies the network address and mask of a network
that the client wishes to have routed to it via IPIP encapsulation. An
optional password may be supplied to the server to authenticate the
client to it if required.
Sending the dgclient program a SIGHUP, SIGTERM, SIGUSR1, or SIGUSR2
will cause it to send three request commands to remove the encapsulated
route and exit.
specifies the time interval between refresh messages sent to the
server. This should always be set to a value no larger than the
dynamic route timer being used at the server. UDP is a lossy
protocol so it may be wise to make this value at most half of
the server route timeout to ensure that one lost datagram
doesn’t cause the route to be lost.
specifies the optional password to supply to the server for
species an optional UDP port to use if the default of 1234 is
not being used.
-d causes the daemon stay running in the foreground of the terminal
in which it was executed. The default is to automatically detach
from the terminal and run in the background.
server specifies the name of the Dynamic Gateway Route Server.
specifes the encapsulated route you wish routed to you. This
should be supplied in CIDR format, ie. 188.8.131.52/24 would
specify the network address 184.108.40.206 and a netmask of
255.255.255.0; 24 bits.
dgclient was written by Terry Dawson <email@example.com> and based
on the protocol described by the MFNOS implementation developed by
Barry Siegfried, K2MF. Bug reports should be sent to
<firstname.lastname@example.org> or <email@example.com>.
