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

NAME
     rtadvctl -- control program for rtadvd(8) daemon

SYNOPSIS
     rtadvctl [-v] subcommand [interface ...]

DESCRIPTION
     rtadvctl is a utility that	communicates with rtadvd(8) daemon and dis-
     plays information about Router Advertisement messages being sent on each
     interface.

     This utility provides several options and subcommands.  The options are
     as	follows:

     -v	     Increase verbosity	level.	When specified once, the rtadvctl
	     utility shows additional information about	prefixes, RDNSS, and
	     DNSSL options.  When given	twice, it additionally shows informa-
	     tion about	inactive interfaces and	some statistics.

     The subcommands are as follows:

     reload [interfaces...]
	     Specifies to reload the configuration file.  If one or more
	     interface is specified, configuration entries for the interfaces
	     will be reloaded selectively.

     enable interfaces...
	     Specifies to mark the interface as	enable and to try to reload
	     the configuration entry.  This subcommand is useful for dynami-
	     cally-added interfaces.

	     The rtadvd(8) daemon marks	an interface as	enable if the inter-
	     face exists and the configuration file has	a valid	entry for that
	     when it is	invoked.

     disable interfaces...
	     Specifies to mark the interface as	disable.

     shutdown
	     Makes the rtadvd(8) daemon	shut down.  Note that the rtadvd(8)
	     daemon will send several RAs with zero lifetime to	invalidate the
	     old information on	each interface.	 It will take at most nine
	     seconds.

     show [interfaces...]
	     Displays information on Router Advertisement messages being sent
	     on	each interface.
