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.

     netgraph(3), netgraph(4), ngctl(8)

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