RRENUMD(8)                BSD System Manager's Manual               RRENUMD(8)

NAME
     rrenumd -- router renumbering daemon

SYNOPSIS
     rrenumd [-df] [-c conf_file | -s]

DESCRIPTION
     The rrenumd utility transmits router renumbering request packets, to
     renumber the routers in the site network.

     On KAME-based systems, router renumbering requests are received and pro-
     cessed by rtadvd(8).  For other systems, refer to relevant documents.

     The program will daemonize itself on invocation.  It reads configuration
     information from standard input if -s is specified, or from conf_file if
     -c conf_file is specified.

     The contents of configuration information are described in
     rrenumd.conf(5).

     After successful configuration, rrenumd sends router renumbering messages
     periodically to configured destinations.  Messages contain prefixes con-
     figured to be renumbered.

     -d      Debug mode.

     -f      Foreground mode.  Do not become daemon.

     -s      Script mode.  Configuration information is obtained from standard
             input.

     -c conf_file
             Specify a configuration file where configuration information is
             kept.

RETURN VALUES
     The program exits with 0 on success, and non-zero on failures.
