This manual page documents briefly the xorp_rtrmgr command.
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
xorp_rtrmgr is the program that that manages the whole eXtensible Open
Router Platform (XORP) platform. The program loads its configuration
file (commonly named config.boot) which will read from the current
working directory You can specify a different filename for the
configuration file using the -b command line flag. The -N "no
execute" flag will cause xorp_rtrmgr to startup and pretend the router
is operating normally, but to not actually start any processes. This
can be used to check configuration files.
Typically xorp_rtrmgr must be run as root. This is because it starts up
processes that need privileged access to insert routes into the
forwarding path in the kernel.
To interact with the router via the command line interface, the
operator should use the XORP command shell xorpsh.
