This manual page documents briefly the xorp_rtrmgr command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. xorp_rtrmgr is the program that that manages the whole eXtensible Open Router Platform (XORP) platform. The program loads its configuration file (commonly named config.boot) which will read from the current working directory You can specify a different filename for the configuration file using the -b command line flag. The -N "no execute" flag will cause xorp_rtrmgr to startup and pretend the router is operating normally, but to not actually start any processes. This can be used to check configuration files. Typically xorp_rtrmgr must be run as root. This is because it starts up processes that need privileged access to insert routes into the forwarding path in the kernel. To interact with the router via the command line interface, the operator should use the XORP command shell xorpsh.
xorp_rtrmgr allows the following options: -a allowed host Host allowed by the finder. -b, -c file Boot configuration file to load. -C directory Specify operational commands directory. -d Run in daemon mode in background. -h Show summary of options. -i interface Set or add an interface run Finder on. -l file Log all the program information and errors to a file. -L facility.priority Log all the program output to a given syslog facility. -m directory Specify protocol modules directory. -n allowed net Subnet allowed by the finder. -N Load the configuration but do not execute XRLs and do not start processes. -p port Set port to run Finder on. -P file Write the process ID to a given file. -q seconds Set forced quit period. -r Restart failed processes (not implemented yet). -t directory Specify templates directory. -v Print verbose information. -x directory Specify Xrl targets directory.
xorpsh (1) The programs are documented fully in the Xorp User Manual available at /usr/share/doc/xorp-doc/ in Debian systems when the xorp-doc package is installed.
