       bcrelay - a broadcast relay daemon


       bcrelay [OPTION]...


       bcrelay  simply  plays  as  a  broadcast  repeater. When bcrelay receives packets from the
       incoming interface, it will then relay them to the outgoing interface.


              Run bcrelay as a daemon.

              Show help message.

       -i,--incoming interface-in
              Defines from which interface broadcasts will be read.

       -s,--outgoing interface-out
              Defines to which interface broadcasts will be relayed.

              Disable any logging and tracing to /var/log/messages except fatal error messages.

       -s,--ipsec argument
              Defines an ipsec tunnel to be relayed to. Since ipsec tunnels terminate on the same
              interface,  we  need  to define the broadcast address of the other end-point of the
              tunnel. This is done as ipsec0:x.x.x.255.

              Show the version of bcrelay.

       Log messages and debugging information go to syslog as daemon.

       Interfaces can be specified as regexpressions, ie. ppp[0-9]+.
