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


     rtquery - query routing daemons for their routing tables


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


     rtquery is used to query a RIPv1/2 network routing daemon for its routing
     table by sending a request command. The routing information in any rout-
     ing response packets returned is displayed numerically and symbolically.
     rtquery is also used to turn tracing on or off.

     See routed(8) for more information about a RIPv1/2 capable routing dae-

     The options are as follows:

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

     -n      Normally network and host numbers are displayed both symbolically
             and numerically. The -n option displays only the numeric network
             and host numbers.

     -p      Uses the poll command to request full routing information, in-
             stead of the default request command.

     -r addr
             Ask about the route to destination addr.

     -t op   Change tracing, where op is one of the following. Requests from
             processes not running with UID 0 or on distant networks are gen-
             erally ignored by the daemon except for a message in the system

                   dump    Dumps the daemon's routing table to the current

                   more    Increases the debugging level.

                   off     Turns off tracing.

                           Turn 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

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