NAME
       olsrd - Optimized Link State Routing protocol daemon

SYNOPSIS
       olsrd [ -i  interface1 [interface2 ...]	] [ -f	configfile ] [ -d  de-
       buglevel	] [ -ipv6 ] [ -ipc ] [ -dispin ] [ -dispout ] [	 -nofork  ]  [
       -bcast	broadcastaddress  ]  [	-delgw	]  [ -hint  HELLO interval ] [
       -tcint  TC interval ] [ -midint	MID interval ] [ -hnaint  HNA interval
       ] [ -T  scheduler poll rate ] [ -hemu  IP address ]

DESCRIPTION
       olsrd is	an implementation of the Optimized Link	State Routing protocol
       for  Mobile  Ad-Hoc  networks(MANET).  The  protocol  is	 described  in
       RFC3626.	 It is designed	to be run as a standalone server process - but
       as it is	still in an experimental stage most users will prefer  running
       it with some debug output which is directed to STDOUT.

       This  manual page only lists the	command	line arguments.	For details of
       the configuration file see the comments	included  in  /etc/olsrd.conf.
       Note  that  none	 of these options need to be set at the	command	line -
       all these options and others can	be set in the configuration file.

       This implementation also	features an alternative	routing	 scheme	 based
       on link quality using an	ETX-like metric	developed by the c-base	commu-
       nity in Berlin. To enable and tweak this	mode you must use the configu-
       ration file.

       The homepage of olsrd is	http://www.olsr.org

OPTIONS
       -i interface1 ... interfaceN
		   This	 option	 specifies  on	what  network interfaces olsrd
		   should run. These interfaces	cannot be  aliased  interfaces
		   such	as eth0:1.

       -f configfile
		   This	 option	 overrides the default configuration file path
		   used	by olsrd - /etc/olsrd.conf

       -d debuglevel
		   This	option specifies the amount of debug information olsrd
		   should  write  to STDOUT. If	set to 0 olsrd will run	in the
		   background.

       -ipv6	   This	option instructs olsrd to use  the  Internet  Protocol
		   version 6. The default is version 4.

       -ipc	   This	 option	 allows	the GUI	front-end created fro olsrd to
		   connect to olsrd at runtime.

       -dispin	   This	option,	when set, causes olsrd to display all incoming
		   packet  data	 on  STDOUT.  When using IPv4 the data is dis-
		   played in decimal format, when using	IPv6 the data is  dis-
		   played in hexadecimal format.

       -dispout	   This	option,	when set, causes olsrd to display all outgoing
		   packet data on STDOUT. When using IPv4  the	data  is  dis-
		   played  in decimal format, when using IPv6 the data is dis-
		   played in hexadecimal format.

       -nofork	   This	option,	when set, causes olsrd not to fork and run  in
		   the	background  if	started	 with debuglevel 0. Useful for
		   init	scripts.

       -delgw	   If this option is set olsrd will remove any default	routes
		   set	prior  to adding an Internet route based on OLSR rout-
		   ing.

       -bcast broadcastaddress
		   This	option specifies what IPv4 broadcastaddress to use for
		   OLSR	 control  traffic. The only value that currently makes
		   sense  when	setting	  broadcast   address	mannually   is
		   255.255.255.255.   The  default action is to	use the	broad-
		   castaddres that  the	 network  interface  is	 preconfigured
		   with(per interface).

       -hint seconds
		   This	value sets the interval	on which HELLO messages	should
		   be generated. The value is a	floating point	number	repre-
		   senting seconds.

       -tcint seconds
		   This	value sets the interval	on which TC messages should be
		   generated. The value	is a floating point number  represent-
		   ing seconds.

       -midint seconds
		   This	 value	sets the interval on which MID messages	should
		   be generated. The value is a	floating point	number	repre-
		   senting seconds.

       -hnaint seconds
		   This	 value	sets the interval on which HNA messages	should
		   be generated. The value is a	floating point	number	repre-
		   senting seconds.

       -T seconds  This	 option	 sets  the polling intervall of	the scheduler.
		   The default is 0.1 seconds. This option should only be con-
		   sidered if running with really low emission intervals.

       -hemu IP	address
		   Use this option to connect to the olsr_switch network simu-
		   lation application. Here IP address will be the IP  address
		   that	the process will set as	its main address in the	emula-
		   tion	mode. This address has no connection to	the  real  IP-
		   stack and can be chosen freely.
