NAME

zorpctl_ - Start and stop zorp instances.

SYNOPSIS

zorpctl command [options [instances/@instance-list-file]]

DESCRIPTION

zorpctl starts and stops zorp(8) instances based on the contents of the instances.conf(5) file. Multiple instance names can be specified in the command-line or in a file to start or stop several instances. If an error occurs while stopping or starting an instance, an exclamation mark is appended to the instance name as zorpctl processes the request, and a summary is printed when the program exits. If no instance is specified, the command is executed on all instances. The instances to be controlled can be specified in a file instead of listing them in the command line, e.g.: zorpctl command options instances.txt. The instances.txt should contain every instance name in a new line.
