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

     pim6dd - PIM for IPv6 dense mode daemon

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

     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-
     capable 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
     commands 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.

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

     daemon(3), pim6dd.conf(5)

     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.

     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).
