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
             is 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.

     procedures.
