NAME

       dnetnml - DECnet Network Management Listener

SYNOPSIS

       dnetnml [options]
       Options:
       [-dVh]

DESCRIPTION

       dnetnml  is  a  daemon  that  serves  incoming management requests from
       remote systems, usually  NCP  in  the  case  of  VMS  and  RSX.  It  is
       recommended  that  the daemon be run from dnetd by adding the following
       line to /etc/dnetd.conf:
       NML            19         N         nobody       dnetnml

       Currently it only serves a subset of information  requests.  These  are
       (in NCP terms):
       SHOW KNOWN NODES
       SHOW ADJACENT NODES
       SHOW EXEC CHAR
       SHOW KNOWN OBJECTS
       SHOW KNOWN LINKS
       Note  that  for SHOW KNOWN OBJECTS to work, /etc/dnetd.conf needs to be
       readable by the daemon user (usually 'nobody')  or  it  will  return  a
       Privilege  Violation.  There  is no sensitive data in this file so it's
       quite OK to set the  permissions  to  0644.  Though  this  is  not  the
       default.

OPTIONS

       -d     Don't fork and run the background. Use this for debugging.

       -v     Verbose.  The  more  of these there are the more verbose dnetnml
              will be. Don't use more than one for normal operation because it
              will seriously impair performance.

       -h -?  Displays help for using the command.

       -V     Show the version of dnetnml.

BUGS

       Probably  lots,  particularly as some of the functions are undocumented
       and I've had to reverse-engineer them.  SHOW KNOWN LINKS  doesn't  show
       quite  the  same  information  as  VMS  does.  dnetnml  relies  on  the
       information it can get from /proc/net/decnet so it can't show load PIDs
       or processes unfortunately.
