NAME

qethconf - Configure QETH functions IPA, VIPA and Proxy ARP.

SYNOPSIS

qethconf TYPE CMD [[-x]IPADDR[/MASKBITS]] [INTERFACE]

DESCRIPTION

qethconf simplifies usage of QETH IPA, VIPA and Proxy ARP functions for OSA-Express cards in layer 3 mode.
 
TYPE
<ipa/vipa/parp|rxip/list_all/list_msg>
 
Choose one of these keywords for function:
 
ipa - IP address takeover (IPA)
 
vipa - Virtual IP address (VIPA)
 
parp|rxip - Proxy ARP
 
list_all - List all available IPA, VIPA and Proxy ARP entries from the sysfs
 
list_msg - List messages and explanation of errors during command execution
CMD
<add/del/inv4/inv6/list>
 
where
 
add - Add an IP address or address range.
 
del - Delete an IP address or address range.
 
inv4 - Invert the selection of address ranges for IPv4 (only IPA).
 
inv6 - Invert the selection of address ranges for IPv6 (only IPA).
 
list - List TYPE specific entries from the sysfs
 
IPADDR
Required for commands add and del.
 
IP address in IPv4 or IPv6 format,
 
e.g. 192.168.10.38 or FE80::1:800:23e7:f5db
 
Use preceding option -x for hexadecimal input format, e.g. -xc0a80a26
 
MASKBITS
Number of bits set in the network mask. This allows to specify an address range, e.g. 192.168.10.0/24. This subparameter is only valid for function IPA.
INTERFACE
Interface name to which the address or address range is bound, e.g. eth0. This parameter is required for add, del and the inv4 and inv6 command.
 
 

RESTRICTIONS

Needs at least bash version 2.0.

EXAMPLES

qethconf ipa add 192.168.10.0/24 eth0
qethconf ipa add -xc0a80a00/24 eth1
qethconf ipa inv4 eth0
qethconf parp add 10.0.0.2 eth0 (or qethconf rxip add 10.0.0.2 eth0)
qethconf vipa del 192.168.10.2 tr0 
qethconf vipa add FE80::1:800:23e7:f5db eth1
qethconf list_all
