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

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

DESCRIPTION
     rtadvctl is a utility that	communicates with the rtadvd(8)	daemon and
     displays 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
	     interfaces	are specified, configuration entries for the inter-
	     faces will	be reloaded selectively.

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

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

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

     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 about	the Router Advertisement messages be-
	     ing sent on each interface.
