       ramond.conf - Configuration file for ramond(8)


       This manual page documents briefly the ramond.conf configuration file.

       ramond.conf   is   an   XML   file  containing  the  rules  for  Router
       Advertisement processing by ramond(8).

       The rules are processed in the order they are defined in the file.


       One      may      refer      to      the       DTD       given       in

       The  root  element, <ramond>, contains one optional attribute, logfile,
       giving the path to the logfile for the daemon.

       This element may contain one or  more  <mac-list>s,  and  one  or  more

       The  <mac-list>  must  have  a name attribute, and contains one or more

       The <rule> may contain a few attributes :

       prefix An IPv6 prefix used for matching RA packets

       mac    A <mac-list> name used for matching source MAC addresses of  the
              RA packets

              This  attribute,  when  having a “0” value, is used for matching
              routes that are being cleared

              The interface which the RA packet came from

       The <rule> may contain :
         · one or more <execute> elements containing the path of  the  scripts
         to run when a packet is matched
         ·  a  <clear/>  element, so that the matched route will be cleared by
         · or no element, indicating an “ignore” rule.


       The environment variables the  configured  scripts  are  run  with  are
       listed in the ramond(8) manpage.


       Set the logfile to be /var/log/ramond.log.

        <ramond logfile="/var/log/ramond.log">

         Define a router mac-list.

          <mac-list name="router">

         Define a rule checking if the router routes are being cleared.

          <rule mac="router" lifetime="0">
            <execute>/usr/local/sbin/routenotify route-cleared</execute>

         Define  a  rule  ignoring  our  router  announcing  routes for prefix

          <rule mac="router" prefix="2001:dead:cafe:babe::/52">
            <!-- do nothing -->

         Clear the 6to4 routes coming on interface eth0.

          <rule prefix="2002::/16" interface="eth0">
            <execute>/usr/local/sbin/routenotify 6to4-advertised</execute>

         Match on all advertised prefixes

          <rule prefix="::/0">
            <execute>/usr/local/sbin/routenotify route-advertised</execute>

         Match on all RA packets (even those not advertising a prefix)

            <execute>/usr/local/sbin/routenotify route-advertised</execute>
