NAME

ramond - IPv6 Router Advertisement MONitor Daemon

SYNOPSIS

ramond [ -c configfile ] [ -d ]
ramond -h

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the ramond command.
ramond is a daemon program monitoring IPv6 router advertisement packets. When an advert is reveived, a configurable action occurs.
ramond was designed to “clear” (by sending spoofed zero lifetime adverts) rogue routes sent by users running 6to4 gateways on a campus network. Actions are scriptable. Almost all the available information is passed to a script via environmental variables (see the ENVIRONMENT section for details).

OPTIONS

The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, without long options. A summary of options is included below.
-c configfile
Sets the path to the ramond configuration file. Default is /etc/ramond.conf
-d
Do not daemonize.
-h
Show summary of options.

FILES

/etc/ramond.conf
The system-wide configuration file to control the behaviour of ramond. See ramond.conf(5) for further details.
