NAME
       mrinfo -	Displays configuration info from a multicast router

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/mrinfo	 [  -d	debug_level  ]	[  -r retry_count ] [ -t time-
       out_count ] multicast_router

DESCRIPTION
       mrinfo attempts to display the configuration information	from the  mul-
       ticast router multicast_router.

       mrinfo  uses  the ASK_NEIGHBORS IGMP message to the specified multicast
       router. If this multicast router	responds, the  version	number	and  a
       list  of	 their	neighboring multicast router addresses is part of that
       response. If the	responding router has a	recent multicast version  num-
       ber,  then  mrinfo  requests  additional	 information  such as metrics,
       thresholds, and flags from the multicast	 router.  Once	the  specified
       multicast  router responds, the configuration is	displayed to the stan-
       dard output.

INVOCATION
       "-d" option sets	the debug level. When the debug	level is greater  than
       the  default  value  of	0,  addition  debugging	 messages are printed.
       Regardless of the debug level, an error condition, will always write an
       error  message and will cause mrinfo to terminate.  Non-zero debug lev-
       els have	the following effects:

       level 1
	      packet warnings are printed to stderr.

       level 2
	      all level	 1  messages  plus  notifications  down	 networks  are
	      printed to stderr.

       level 3
	      all  level  2 messages plus notifications	of all packet timeouts
	      are printed to stderr.

       "-r retry_count"	sets the neighbor query	 retry	limit.	Default	 is  3
       retry.

       "-t  timeout_count"  sets  the number of	seconds	to wait	for a neighbor
       query reply. Default timeout is 4 seconds.

SAMPLE OUTPUT
       mrinfo mbone.phony.dom.net
       127.148.176.10 (mbone.phony.dom.net) [version 3.3]:
	127.148.176.10 -> 0.0.0.0 (?) [1/1/querier]
	127.148.176.10 -> 127.0.8.4 (mbone2.phony.dom.net) [1/45/tunnel]
	127.148.176.10 -> 105.1.41.9 (momoney.com) [1/32/tunnel/down]
	127.148.176.10 -> 143.192.152.119 (mbone.dipu.edu) [1/32/tunnel]

       For each	neighbor of the	 queried  multicast  router,  the  IP  of  the
       queried	router is displayed, followed by the IP	and name of the	neigh-
       bor. In square brackets the metric (cost	of connection),	the  treashold
       (multicast  ttl)	 is  displayed.	 If the	queried	multicast router has a
       newer version number, the type (tunnel, srcrt)  and  status  (disabled,
       down) of	the connection is displayed.

IMPORTANT NOTE
       mrinfo must be run as root.
