ripctlcontrol the Routing Information Protocol daemon


ripctl [-s socket] command [argument ...]


The ripctl program controls the ripd(8) daemon. Commands may be abbreviated to the minimum unambiguous prefix; for example, s n for show neighbor.
The following options are available:
-s socket
Use socket instead of the default /var/run/ripd.sock to communicate with ripd(8).
The following commands are available:
fib couple
Insert the learned routes into the Forward Information Base a.k.a. the kernel routing table.
fib decouple
Remove the learned routes from the Forward Information Base a.k.a. the kernel routing table. Decoupling the FIB from an RIP router may create routing loops and could cause major routing issues.
log brief
Disable verbose debug logging.
log verbose
Enable verbose debug logging.
show fib [destination | filter]
Show the Forwarding Information Base. destination can be specified to show the route matching a destination IP address. filter can be any of the following:
Show only connected routes.
Show only interfaces.
Show only RIP routes.
Show only static routes.
connected, rip, and static may be specified together.
show interfaces
Show details for all interfaces.
show neighbor
Show neighbors.
show rib
Show the Routing Information Base.
