VDE_L3(1)		    General Commands Manual		     VDE_L3(1)

NAME
       vde_l3 -	Virtual	Distributed Ethernet 'Layer 3' Switch.

SYNOPSIS
       vde_l3  -v  vde_plug:ipaddress/netmask [-v...]  [-r target_network/net-
       mask:gateway] [-G default_gw] [-M mgmt_socket]

DESCRIPTION
       A vde_l3	connects to one	or more	vde_switches, performing ip forwarding
       among its virtual interfaces. A new interface is	created	at startup for
       each -v option given at command line. Static routes to target  networks
       can be defined using the	-r option.

       vde_l3 -v /var/run/s1.ctl:192.168.0.1/24

       connects	 to the	vde sock at /var/run/s1.ctl with its virtual interface
       ve0, having the address 192.168.0.1 and netmask 255.255.255.0.

       vde_l3 \

       -v /var/run/s1.ctl:192.168.0.1/24 \

       -v /var/run/s2.ctl:10.0.0.254/255.255.0.0

       connects	to the two vde socks, with its virtual interfaces ve0 and ve1,
       having  addressess  192.168.1.0	and  10.0.0.254	respectively. Hosts in
       each network can	specify	the vde_l3 as their gateway to reach the other
       one.

OPTIONS
       -v vde_plug:ipaddress/netmask
	      Creates a	virtual	network	interfaces on the vde_l3 box, with ad-
	      dress ipaddress and netmask netmask. Please note that  the  net-
	      mask  can	 be specified either in	the 'classic' A.B.C.D mode, or
	      just by giving  the  number  of  leading	bits  (f.e.,  /17  for
	      255.255.128.0).  One can define as many interfaces as she	wants.

       -r target_network/netmask:gateway
	      Specify  a  static  route	through	gateway	to reach hosts in tar-
	      get_network with netmask netmask.	 One can define	as many	routes
	      as she wants.

       -G default_gw
	      Specify  a  default gateway, to be used whenever no static route
	      is defined for a target host.

       -M mgmt_socket
	      the unix socket  where  the  parameters  (interfaces  addresses,
	      routes,  etc.)  can  be checked and changed runtime. unixterm(1)
	      can be used as a remote terminal for wirefilter.
