ax25rtctl — AX.25 routing control program

Synopsis

ax25rtctl [options]

Description

ax25rtctl is a program to control ax25rtd. There are several options:

-a, --add ax25 <callsign> <dev> <time> [digipeater]

Add an entry to the AX.25 routing table. If time is "0" this entry will be marked permanent, hence: the daemon will not overwrite this route.

-d, --del ax25 <callsign> <dev>

Remove an entry from the AX.25 routing table.

-a, --add ip <ip> <dev> <time> <call> <ipmode>

Add an entry to the IP routing table. If time is "0" the entry will be marked permanent.

-d, --del ip <ip>

Remove an entry from the IP routing table.

-l, --list ax25

Lists the content of the cache for the AX.25 routing table.

-l, --list ip

Lists the content of the cache for the IP routing table.

-e, --expire <minutes>

Removes the entries older than <minutes> from the caches and the kernel routing tables.

-s, --save

Saves the AX.25 and IP cache to /var/ax25/ax25rtd/ax25_routes and /var/ax25/ax25rtd/ip_routes (or the files specified in /etc/ax25/ax25rtd.conf).

-r, --reload

Reloads the config file /etc/ax25/ax25rtd.conf. This will *not* affect the caches or the heard list.

-q, --shutdown

Same as 'killall -TERM ax25rtd' ;-)

-V, --version

Prints version.

Note that you can specify either the port name (as defined in /etc/ax25/axports) or the interface name (shown by ifconfig). If names conflict (i.e. port scc0 is in fact interface scc3, and vica versa), the interface name has precedence over the port name.  Example:

  ax25rtctl --add ax25 dl0tha scc3 0 db0pra

is equivalent to

  ax25rtctl --add ax25 dl0tha 9k6 0 dbpra

All commands return port names in their output, though. With one exception: ax25_routes and ip_routes use interface names.
