       dnroute - DECnet Routing Daemon


       dnroute [options]


       dnroute is a daemon that manages the DECnet routing tables to provide a
        but probably useful routing policy.
       dnroute listens for incoming routing messages and adds  routes  in  the
       kernel  for  non-local  areas  that  it  sees.  Routes  will be modifed
       according to these messages so that the lowest cost route  that  is  up
       will  always  be  used. Routes to locally accessible nodes (it those in
       the neighbour table) will also be added.  If you want  to  keep  manual
       control  of  the  route  to  a  particular  area,  then add a line into
       dnroute.conf. eg:
       manual 26
       will disable  dnroute’s  setting  of  routing  tables  for  that  area.
       dnetinfo will still show the route that would have been set with (M) on
       the line to show it has been overidden.
       To implement its routing policies dnroute assumes that  all  interfaces
       on  the  system  have  a  cost  of  4.  To  change  this  add  lines in
       /etc/dnroute.conf for each of the interfaces you need to change. eg
       eth0 6
       eth1 8
       tap0 10
       A script called dnetinfo is provided that gets the routing  information
       from  dnroute  and displays it on stdout in a format similar to the VMS
       command SHOW NET/OLD.


       -d     Don’t fork and run the background. Use this for debugging.

       -v     Verbose. Log route changes to syslog.

       -D     Debug log. Writes debugging information to stderr.  Only  useful
              with -d.

       -h -?  Displays help for using the command.

       -r     Send DECnet routing messages showing the state of local nodes.

       -2     Send DECnet level 2 (area) routing messages. Implies -r.

       -t <secs>
              Timer to send routing messages on. Defaults to 15 seconds.

       -n     Do  not set up routes or send routing messages, just monitor the
              network. Useful for testing.

       -V     Show the version of dnroute.
