mrinfo - Multicast Routing Configuration Information Tool SYNOPSIS
debuglevel] retries] timeout] [ multicast-router ] DESCRIPTION
requests the configuration information from the multicast-ourter, and prints the information to the standard out. multicast-router can be either an IP address or a system name. sends out the ASK_NEIGHBORS igmp message to the specified multicast-router, when the router receives the request, it sends back its configuration information. If the multicast-router is not specified, the request is sent the local router. The the configuration information for each interface is printed in the following format: If there are multiple neighbor routers on one interface, they will all be reported on the output. The possible values for flag are: Neighbors are reached via tunnel. The tunnel uses IP source routing. The interface is down. The interface is administratively disabled for multicast routing. The local router is the querier of the subnet. Please see mrouted(1M) for and The command line options are: Sets the level for printing out the debug message. The default is 0, only error and warning messages will be printed. Debug level three prints most the messages. Sets the retry times to pull the routing daemon for information. The default is 3. Specifies the timeout value in seconds for waiting the reply. The default value is 4. EXAMPLE
The following is an example of quering the multicasting configuration from the local routing daemon. (localhost) [version 3.3]: -> ( [10/1/querier] -> (all-zeros-broadcast) [1/1/disabled] -> ( [10/1/tunnel] -> ( [10/1/tunnel/down] Note must be run as root. AUTHOR

map-mbone - Multicast connection mapper SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/map-mbone [-d debug_level] [-f] [-g] [-n] [-r retry_count] [-t timeout_count] [starting_router] OPTIONS
Sets the debug level. When the debug level is greater than 0 (the default), additional debugging messages are printed. Regardless of the debug level, if an error occurs, map-mbone writes an error message and terminates. Nonzero debug levels have the following effects: Prints packet warnings to stderr. Prints all level 1 messages and notifications of down networks to stderr. Prints all level 2 messages and notifications of all packet timeouts to stderr. Specifies the flooding option. Flooding allows the recursive search of neighboring multi- cast routers, and is enabled by default when starting_router is not used. Specifies graphing in GraphEd format. Disables the Domain Name Service (DNS) lookup for names of multicast routers. Specifies the number of times to retry a neighbor query. The default is 1 retry. Specifies the number of seconds to wait for a neighbor to reply to a query before retrying. The default timeout is 2 seconds. DESCRIPTION
The map-mbone program displays information about all multicast routers that are reachable from the multicast starting_router. If not speci- fied on the command line, the default multicast starting_router is the local host. The map-mbone program traverses neighboring multicast routers by sending the ASK_NEIGHBORS IGMP message to the multicast starting_router. If this multicast router responds, the response includes the version number and a list of addresses of neighboring multicast routers. If the responding router has a recent multicast version number, map-mbone requests additional information such as metrics, thresholds, and options from the multicast router. If the flooding option (-f) is specified, map-mbone asks each new neighboring multicast router for a list of neighbors. This search for unique routers continues until no new neighboring multicast routers are reported. RESTRICTIONS
You must be superuser in order to run map-mbone. SEE ALSO
