NAME

       ramond - IPv6 Router Advertisement MONitor Daemon

SYNOPSIS

       ramond [ -c configfile ] [ -d ]

       ramond -h

DESCRIPTION

       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).

OPTIONS

       The 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
