NAME

ndpcontrol/diagnose IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP)

SYNOPSIS

ndp [-acnt] [-A wait] [-d hostname] [-f filename] [-i interface] [-s nodename ether_addr [temp] [proxy]] [-V rdomain] [hostname]

DESCRIPTION

The ndp command manipulates the address mapping table used by the Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP).
 
 
-A wait
Repeat -a (dump NDP entries) every wait seconds.
 
 
-a
Dump the currently existing NDP entries. The following information will be printed:
 
 
Neighbor
The IPv6 address of the neighbor.
 
 
Linklayer Address
The linklayer address of the neighbor. If the address is not available, it will be displayed as “(incomplete)”.
 
 
Netif
The network interface associated with the neighbor cache entry.
 
 
Expire
The time until expiry of the entry. If the entry is marked “permanent”, it will never expire.
 
 
S
The state of the neighbor cache entry, as a single letter:
D
Delay
I
Incomplete
N
Nostate
P
Probe
R
Reachable
S
Stale
W
Waitdelete
?
Unknown state (should never happen).
 
 
Flags
Flags on the neighbor cache entry, in a single letter. They are: local (‘l’), Router (‘R’) and proxy neighbor advertisement (‘p’). This field may be followed by a decimal number, representing the number of NS probes the node has sent during the current state.
 
 
-c
Erase all the NDP entries.
 
 
-d hostname
Delete the specified NDP entry.
 
 
-f filename
Parse entries from file to be inserted in the neighbor cache. See the -s option for a description of the file format.
 
 
-i interface
View ND information for the specified interface.
 
 
-n
Do not try to resolve numeric addresses to hostnames.
 
 
-s nodename ether_addr [temp] [proxy]
Register an NDP entry for the node called nodename with the Ether address ether_addr. The Ethernet address is given as six hexadecimal bytes separated by colons. The entry will be permanent unless the word temp is given in the command. If the word proxy is given, this system will act as an ND Proxy server, responding to requests for nodename even though the node address is not its own.
 
 
-t
Print a timestamp on each entry, making it possible to merge output with tcpdump(8). Most useful when used with -A.
 
 
-V rdomain
Select the routing domain.

EXIT STATUS

The ndp utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
