ramond - IPv6 Router Advertisement MONitor Daemon
ramond [ -c configfile ] [ -d ]
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).
The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, without long
options. A summary of options is included below.
Sets the path to the ramond configuration file. Default is
-d Do not daemonize.
-h Show summary of options.
The system-wide configuration file to control the behaviour of
ramond. See ramond.conf(5) for further details.
This section details the environment variables set by ramond when it
runs a user-configured script.
