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

NAME
     nghook -- connect to a netgraph(4)	node

SYNOPSIS
     nghook [-a] [-d] path [hookname]

DESCRIPTION
     nghook creates a ng_socket(4) socket type node and	connects it to hook
     hookname of the node found	at path.  If hookname is omitted, ``debug'' is
     assumed.

     At	this point all data written to standard	input is sent to the node and
     all data received from the	node is	relayed	to standard output.

     The options are as	follows:

     -a	     Output each read packet in	ASCII.

     -d	     Increase the debugging verbosity level.

BUGS
     Although all input	is read	in unbuffered mode, there's no way to control
     the packetization of the input.

HISTORY
     The netgraph system was designed and first	implemented at Whistle Commu-
     nications,	Inc. in	a version of FreeBSD 2.2 customized for	the Whistle
     InterJet.
