ax25rtctl - AX.25 routing control program

AX25RTCTL(8) Linux Programmer's Manual AX25RTCTL(8)

NAME

ax25rtctl - AX.25 routing control program

SYNOPSIS

ax25rtctl [options]

DESCRIPTION

ax25rtctl is a program to control ax25rtd. There are several options:
-a, --add ax25 <callsign> <dev> <time> [digipeater]
Add an entry to the AX.25 routing table. If time is "0" this entry will be marked permanent, hence: the daemon will not overwrite this route.
-d, --del ax25 <callsign> <dev>
Remove an entry from the AX.25 routing table.
-a, --add ip <ip> <dev> <time> <call> <ipmode>
Add an entry to the IP routing table. If time is "0" the entry will be marked permanent.
-d, --del ip <ip>
Remove an entry from the IP routing table.
-l, --list ax25
Lists the content of the cache for the AX.25 routing table.
-l, --list ip
Lists the content of the cache for the IP routing table.
-e, --expire <minutes>
Removes the entries older than <minutes> from the caches and the kernel routing tables.
-s, --save
Saves the AX.25 and IP cache to /var/ax25/ax25rtd/ax25_routes and /var/ax25/ax25rtd/ip_routes (or the files specified in /etc/ax25/ax25rtd.conf).
-r, --reload
Reloads the config file /etc/ax25/ax25rtd.conf. This will *not* affect the caches or the heard list.
-q, --shutdown
Same as 'killall -TERM ax25rtd' ;-)
-V, --version
Prints version.
Note that you can specify either the port name (as defined in /etc/ax25/axports) or the interface name (shown by ifconfig). If names conflict (i.e. port scc0 is in fact interface scc3, and vica versa), the interface name has precedence over the port name. Example:
 

ax25rtctl --add ax25 dl0tha scc3 0 db0pra
 
is equivalent to
 

ax25rtctl --add ax25 dl0tha 9k6 0 dbpra
 
All commands return port names in their output, though. With one exception: ax25_routes and ip_routes use interface names.
 

FILES

/etc/ax25/ax25rtd.conf
