SYNOPSIS

npd6 [ -hvcdDf] [ -c configfile ] [ -l logfile ]
 

DESCRIPTION

npd6 is a daemon which listens on nominated interfaces for IPv6 Neighbor Solicitations which match defined prefixes. It will answer them with an appropriate Neighbor Advertisement.
 
npd6 is configured using a config file (default /etc/npd6.conf) and also has a number of cli options to enable various levels of logging, debug, etc.
 
Please read the man page for the config file for much more information.
