PIM6DD(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     PIM6DD(8)

NAME
     pim6dd -- PIM for IPv6 dense mode daemon

SYNOPSIS
     pim6dd [-c	configfile] [-d	[debug_level [,debug_level]]]

DESCRIPTION
     pim6dd is an IPv6 multicast routing daemon, which supports	PIMv2(Protocol
     Independent Multicast Version 2) dense mode for IPv6.

     Options supported by pim6dd:

     -c	configfile
	     Specify alternate location, configfile, for configuration file.
	     By	default, /usr/local/etc/pim6dd.conf is used.

     -d	     Specify debug levels. If this option is specified without any
	     arguments,	all debug messages will	be printed out.	 A subset of
	     the messages to be	printed	out can	be specified as	arguments of
	     the option.  Valid	debug levels are timeout, packets, interfaces,
	     kernel, mfc, pim_detail, pim_hello, kernel, mfc, pim_detail,
	     pim_hello,	pim_jp,	pim_graft, pim_asserts,	pim_routes,
	     pim_timers, rpf, pim, routes, routers, timers, and	asserts.

     pim6dd automatically configures itself to forward on all multicast-capa-
     ble interfaces, i.e., interfaces that have	the IFF_MULTICAST flag set
     (excluding	the "loopback interface" and interaces that do not have	an
     IPv6 address).  To	override the default configuration, configuration com-
     mands may be placed in /usr/local/etc/pim6dd.conf (or an alternative
     file, specified by	the `-c' option).  Note	that pim6dd ignores interfaces
     that do not have an IPv6 address.	Such interfaces	should not appear in
     the configuration file.

FILES
     /usr/local/etc/pim6dd.conf	 The default configuration file.

SEE ALSO

HISTORY
     The pim6dd	command	is based on pimdd, which is an IPv4 multicast routing
     daemon developed at the University	of Oregon.  pimdd has been derived
     from PIM sparse-mode pimd developed at University of Southern California.
     Part of these two programs	above has also been derived from mrouted.
     mrouted is	COPYRIGHT 1989 by The Board of Trustees	of Leland Stanford
     Junior University.

BUGS
     pim6dd does not contain any unicast routing engine, so a unicast routing
     daemon needs to run on the	system.

     The kernel	unicast	routing	table is periodically polled by	pim6dd in
     order to follow changes of	existing unicast routes.

     pim6dd must be used on an IPv6 router.  Be	sure to	set
     net.inet6.ip6.forwarding variable to 1 with sysctl(8).
