       tayga - stateless NAT64 daemon


       tayga [OPTION]...

       tayga --mktun [OPTION]...

       tayga --rmtun [OPTION]...


       TAYGA  is  a  stateless  NAT64  daemon for Linux.  Using the in-kernel TUN network driver,
       TAYGA receives IPv4 and IPv6 packets from the host's network stack, translates them to the
       other  protocol, and then sends the translated packets back to the host using the same TUN

       Translation is compliant  with  IETF  RFC  6145,  and  address  mapping  is  performed  in
       accordance  with RFC 6052 or RFC 7757.  Optionally, TAYGA may be configured to dynamically
       map IPv6 hosts to addresses drawn from a configured IPv4 address pool.

       As a stateless NAT, TAYGA requires a one-to-one mapping between IPv4  addresses  and  IPv6
       addresses.   Mapping multiple IPv6 addresses onto a single IPv4 address can be achieved by
       mapping IPv6 addresses to private IPv4 addresses with TAYGA  and  then  using  a  stateful
       NAT44  (such  as the iptables(8) MASQUERADE target) to map the private IPv4 addresses onto
       the desired single IPv4 address.

       TAYGA's configuration is stored in the tayga.conf(5)  file,  which  is  usually  found  in
       /etc/tayga.conf or /usr/local/etc/tayga.conf.


       Without  the  --mktun  or  --rmtun  options,  the  `tayga`  executable  runs  as a daemon,
       translating packets as described above.

       The --mktun and --rmtun options instruct TAYGA to create  or  destroy,  respectively,  its
       configured TUN device as a "persistent" interface and then immediately exit.

       Persistent  TUN  devices remain present on the host system even when TAYGA is not running.
       This allows host-side network parameters and firewall rules  to  be  configured  prior  to
       commencement  of packet translation.  This may simplify network configuration on the host;
       for example, systems which use a Debian-style /etc/network/interfaces file  may  configure
       TAYGA's  TUN  device  at  boot  by  running `tayga --mktun` as a "pre-up" command and then
       configuring the TUN device as any other network interface.


       -c configfile | --config configfile

              Do not detach from terminal

       -u userid | --user userid
              Set uid to userid after initialization

       -g groupid | --group groupid
              Set gid to groupid after initialization

       -r | --chroot
              chroot() to data-dir (specified in config file)

       -p pidfile | --pidfile pidfile
              Write process ID of daemon to pidfile
