NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for rtquery (netbsd section 8)

RTQUERY(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			       RTQUERY(8)

     rtquery -- query routing daemons for their routing tables

     rtquery [-1np] [-a secret] [-r addr] [-w timeout] host ...
     rtquery [-t op] host ...

     rtquery is used to query a RIP network routing daemon, routed(8) or gated(8), for its rout-
     ing table by sending a request or poll command.  The routing information in any routing
     response packets returned is displayed numerically and symbolically.

     rtquery by default uses the request command.  When the -p option is specified, rtquery uses
     the poll command, an undocumented extension to the RIP protocol supported by gated(8).  When
     querying gated(8), the poll command is preferred over the request command because the
     response is not subject to Split Horizon and/or Poisoned Reverse, and because some versions
     of gated do not answer the request command.  routed(8) does not answer the poll command, but
     recognizes requests coming from rtquery and so answers completely.

     rtquery is also used to turn tracing on or off in routed(8).

     The following options are available:

     -n      displays only the numeric network and host numbers instead of both numeric and sym-

     -p      uses the poll command to request full routing information from gated(8).  This is an
	     undocumented extension RIP protocol supported only by gated(8).

     -1      queries using RIP version 1 instead of RIP version 2.

     -w timeout
	     changes the delay for an answer from each host.  By default, each host is given 15
	     seconds to respond.

     -r addr
	     asks about the route to destination addr.

     -a passwd=XXX

     -a md5_passwd=XXX|KeyID
	     causes the query to be sent with the indicated cleartext or MD5 password.

     -t op   changes tracing, where op is one of the following.  Requests from processes not run-
	     ning with UID 0 or on distant networks are generally ignored by the daemon except
	     for a message in the system log.  gated(8) is likely to ignore these debugging

		       turns tracing on into the specified file.  That file must usually have
		       been specified when the daemon was started or be the same as a fixed name,
		       often /etc/routed.trace.

	       more    increases the debugging level.

	       off     turns off tracing.

	       dump    dumps the daemon's routing table to the current tracefile.
