       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

       -C directory
                 Specify operational commands directory.

       -d        Run in daemon mode in background.

       -h        Show summary of options.
