|RAD(8)||System Manager's Manual||RAD(8)|
radis an IPv6 router advertisement daemon. It periodically sends IPv6 router advertisement messages with prefix and default router informations. Clients like slaacd(8) use these to configure IPv6 addresses on network interfaces and set default routes. Additionally it listens for IPv6 router solicitation messages and responds with router advertisements.
radis usually started at boot time, and can be enabled by setting the following in /etc/rc.conf.local:
radcan be controlled with the ractl(8) utility. The options are as follows:
radwill run in the foreground and log to stderr.
radprogram first appeared in OpenBSD 6.4.
radprogram was written by Florian Obser <email@example.com>.
radon a carp(4) interface, it is recommended to either disable SOIIs (persistent Semantically Opaque Interface Identifiers) on the interface with ifconfig(8), or ensure that all CARP peers have the same SOII key stored in /etc/soii.key. Otherwise the default IPv6 router's link-local address will change during CARP failover, which temporarily disrupts connectivity of IPv6 autoconf clients.
