NAME

ripdRouting Information Protocol daemon

SYNOPSIS

ripd [-dnv] [-D macro=value] [-f file] [-s socket]

DESCRIPTION

ripd is the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) daemon which manages routers' routing tables.
A running ripd can be controlled with the ripctl(8) utility.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-D macro=value
Define macro to be set to value on the command line. Overrides the definition of macro in the configuration file.
 
 
-d
Do not daemonize. If this option is specified, ripd will run in the foreground and log to stderr.
 
 
-f file
Specify an alternative configuration file.
 
 
-n
Configtest mode. Only check the configuration file for validity.
 
 
-s socket
Use an alternate location for the default control socket.
 
 
-v
Produce more verbose output.
