bcrelay — a broadcast relay daemon

Synopsis

bcrelay [OPTION]...

Description

bcrelay simply plays as a broadcast repeater. When bcrelay receives packets from the incomming interface, it will then relay them to the outgoing interface.

Options

-d,--daemon

Run bcrelay as a daemon.

-h,--help

Show help message.

-i,--incoming interface-in

Defines from which interface broadcasts will be read.

-s,--outgoing interface-out

Defines to which interface broadcasts will be relayed.

-n,--nolog

Disable any logging and tracing to /var/log/messages except fatal error messages.

-s,--ipsec argument

Defines an ipsec tunnel to be relayed to. Since ipsec tunnels terminate on the same interface, we need to define the broadcast address of the other end-point of the tunnel. This is done as ipsec0:x.x.x.255.

-v,--version

Show the version of bcrelay.

Log messages and debugging information go to syslog as daemon.

Interfaces can be specified as regexpressions, ie. ppp[0-9]+.
