routed Linux Command


routed [options] [logfile]
TCP/IP command. Network routing daemon. routed is invoked by a privileged user at boot time to manage the Internet routing tables. The routing daemon uses a variant of the Xerox NS Routing Information Protocol in maintaining up-to-date kernel routing-table entries. When routed is started, it uses the SIOCGIFCONF ioctl call to find those directly connected interfaces configured into the system and marked up. routed transmits a REQUEST packet on each interface and then enters a loop, listening for REQUEST and RESPONSE packets from other hosts. When a REQUEST packet is received, routed formulates a reply based on the information maintained in its internal tables. The generated RESPONSE packet contains a list of known routes. Any RESPONSE packets received are used to update the routing tables as appropriate.

When an update is applied, routed records the change in its internal tables, updates the kernel routing table, and generates a RESPONSE packet reflecting these changes to all directly connected hosts and networks.


Debugging mode. Log additional information to the logfile.

Offer a route to the default destination.

Do not supply routing information. This is the default behavior when a system has only one network interface and no point-to-point links. Opposite of -s.

Force routed to supply routing information, whether it is acting as an internetwork router or not. This is the default behavior when a system has multiple network interfaces or a point-to-point link.

Stop routed from going into background and releasing itself from the controlling terminal, so that interrupts from the keyboard will kill the process.
