       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.
