Description

The in.ripngd daemon listens on IP interfaces for IPv6 RIP routing messages. It also sends updates on the kernel's routing table to neighbouring routers. By default, it both listens on and sends to all running IP interfaces in the system.

If the operator wishes to restrict operation of the daemon to a particular interface, they can do one of two things:

  • if using ifconfig(1M) to configure interfaces, they would arrange for the NORTEXCH flag to be set on the interfaces which should not participate in route exchange
  • if using ipadm(1M), they would use the exchange_routes interface property

The manual page, in.ripngd(1M), does not address this behaviour, but it should.
