SYNOPSIS

npd6 [ -hvcdDf] [ -c configfile ] [ -l logfile ]

DESCRIPTION

npd6 is a daemon which listens on nominated interfaces for IPv6 Neighbor Solicitations which match defined prefixes. It will answer them with an appropriate Neighbor Advertise‐ ment. npd6 is configured using a config file (default /etc/npd6.conf) and also has a number of cli options to enable various levels of logging, debug, etc. Please read the man page for the config file for much more information.

OPTIONS

-h, --help Displays short usage summary and then exits. -v, --version Displays the version of npd6 and then exits. -c configfile, --config configfile Alternate config file. Default is /etc/npd6.conf See npd6.conf(5). -d, --debug Enable debug logging - moderate. -D, --debug2 Enable more debug logging - lots. -f, --foreground Run npd6 in the foreground, staying attached to the terminal. Default is that it daemonizes otherwise. Typically used for debugging, etc. -l logfile, --logfile logfile The default is that npd6 logs via syslog.
