SYNOPSIS

       olsrd [ -i  interface1 [interface2 ...]  ] [ -f  configfile ] [ -d  debuglevel ] [ -ipv6 ]
       [ -ipc ] [ -dispin ] [ -dispout ] [ -nofork ] [ -bcast  broadcastaddress ] [  -delgw  ]  [
       -hint   HELLO  interval ] [ -tcint  TC interval ] [ -midint  MID interval ] [ -hnaint  HNA
       interval ] [ -T  scheduler poll rate ] [ -hemu  IP address ]

DESCRIPTION

       olsrd is an implementation of the Optimized Link State Routing protocol for Mobile  Ad-Hoc
       networks(MANET).  The  protocol  is  described  in RFC3626.  It is designed to be run as a
       standalone server process - but as it is still in an experimental stage  most  users  will
       prefer running it with some debug output which is directed to STDOUT.

       This  manual  page only lists the command line arguments. For details of the configuration
       file see the comments included in /etc/olsrd.conf.  Note that none of these  options  need
       to  be  set  at  the  command  line  -  all  these  options  and  others can be set in the
       configuration file.

       This implementation also features an alternative routing  scheme  based  on  link  quality
       using  an ETX-like metric developed by the c-base community in Berlin. To enable and tweak
       this mode you must use the configuration file.

OPTIONS

       -i interface1 ... interfaceN
                   This option specifies on what  network  interfaces  olsrd  should  run.  These
                   interfaces cannot be aliased interfaces such as eth0:1.

       -f configfile
                   This  option  overrides  the  default  configuration file path used by olsrd -
                   /etc/olsrd.conf

       -d debuglevel
                   This option specifies the amount of debug information olsrd  should  write  to
                   STDOUT. If set to 0 olsrd will run in the background.

       -ipv6       This  option  instructs  olsrd  to  use  the  Internet Protocol version 6. The
                   default is version 4.

       -ipc        This option allows the GUI front-end created fro olsrd to connect to olsrd  at
                   runtime.

       -dispin     This  option,  when  set,  causes olsrd to display all incoming packet data on
                   STDOUT. When using IPv4 the data is displayed in decimal  format,  when  using
                   IPv6 the data is displayed in hexadecimal format.

       -dispout    This  option,  when  set,  causes olsrd to display all outgoing packet data on
                   STDOUT. When using IPv4 the data is displayed in decimal  format,  when  using
                   IPv6 the data is displayed in hexadecimal format.

       -nofork     This  option,  when set, causes olsrd not to fork and run in the background if
                   started with debuglevel 0. Useful for init scripts.

       -delgw      If this option is set olsrd will remove any default routes set prior to adding
                   an Internet route based on OLSR routing.

       -bcast broadcastaddress
                   This  option  specifies  what  IPv4  broadcastaddress  to use for OLSR control
                   traffic. The only value that currently  makes  sense  when  setting  broadcast
                   address  mannually  is  255.255.255.255.   The  default  action  is to use the
                   broadcastaddres  that  the  network  interface   is   preconfigured   with(per
                   interface).

       -hint seconds
                   This  value sets the interval on which HELLO messages should be generated. The
                   value is a floating point number representing seconds.

       -tcint seconds
                   This value sets the interval on which TC messages  should  be  generated.  The
                   value is a floating point number representing seconds.

       -midint seconds
                   This  value  sets  the interval on which MID messages should be generated. The
                   value is a floating point number representing seconds.

       -hnaint seconds
                   This value sets the interval on which HNA messages should  be  generated.  The
                   value is a floating point number representing seconds.

       -T seconds  This  option  sets  the polling intervall of the scheduler. The default is 0.1
                   seconds. This option should only be considered  if  running  with  really  low
                   emission intervals.

       -hemu IP address
                   Use  this option to connect to the olsr_switch network simulation application.
                   Here IP address will be the IP address that the process will set as  its  main
                   address  in the emulation mode. This address has no connection to the real IP-
                   stack and can be chosen freely.
