ILMID(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		      ILMID(8)

NAME
     ilmid -- simple ILMI ATM address registration daemon

SYNOPSIS
     ilmid [-d level] [-f] [-r]

DESCRIPTION
     The ilmid utility is a HARP ATM daemon that performs the ILMI ATM address
     registration procedures with an ATM network switch.  It is	normally
     invoked at	boot time from the ATM startup script.

     For each ATM interface with a UNI signalling manager attached, ilmid will
     open an ILMI PVC (VPI = 0,	VCI = 16) and register the interface's ATM
     address with the switch.  As part of the address registration procedure,
     the ATM switch will notify	the endsystem (local host) of the ``network
     prefix'' portion of the endsystem's ATM address and ilmid will notify the
     switch of the endsystem's ``user part'' of	its address (typically the
     interface card MAC	address).

OPTIONS
     -d	level
	     Specify the debug level for optional protocol tracing.  Messages
	     are written to /var/log/ilmid.

     -f	     Causes ilmid to run in the	foreground.

     -r	     Causes ilmid to issue a coldStart TRAP on all ATM interfaces it's
	     able to open and exit.

NOTES
     This daemon does not fully	conform	to the ATM Forum ILMI specifications.
     In	particular, it does not	make any queries of the	network	side to	ensure
     that the ATM Address table	is empty.  It also does	not implement any of
     the ATM Forum MIB that is specified as part of ILMI.

     The ilmid utility will increment the debug	level when it receives a
     SIGUSR1 signal and	will decrement the debug level when it receives	a
     SIGUSR2 signal.
