     rtquery - query routing daemons for their routing tables

     rtquery [-np1] [-w timeout] [-r addr] [-a secret] host...

     rtquery [-t operation] host...

     The rtquery command is used to query a RIP  network  routing
     daemon,  in.routed(1M)  or  GateD,  for its routing table by
     sending a request or poll command.  The routing  information
     in any routing response packets returned is displayed numer-
     ically and symbolically.

     By default, rtquery uses the request command.  When  the  -p
     option is specified, rtquery uses the poll command, an undo-
     cumented extension to the RIP protocol supported  by  GateD.
     When  querying GateD, 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.  in.routed  does
     not  answer the poll command, but recognizes requests coming
     from rtquery and so answers completely.

     The rtquery command is also used to turn tracing on  or  off
     in in.routed.

     The following options are supported:

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

     -n                      Displays only  the  numeric  network
                             and  host  addresses instead of both
                             numeric and symbolic names.

     -p                      Uses the  poll  command  to  request
                             full routing information from GateD.
                             This is  an  undocumented  extension
                             RIP   protocol   supported  only  by

     -r addr                 Asks about the route to  destination

     -t operation            Changes tracing, where operation  is
                             one  of  the  actions  listed below.
                             Requests from processes not  running
                             with  UID  0  or on distant networks
                             are generally ignored by the  daemon
                             except  for  a message in the system
                             log. GateD is likely to ignore these
                             debugging requests.


                                 Turns  tracing   on,   directing
                                 tracing into the specified file.
                                 That file must have been  speci-
                                 fied when the daemon was started
                                 or      have      the      name,


                                 Increases the debugging level.


                                 Turns off tracing.


                                 Dumps the daemon's routing table
                                 to the current trace file.

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

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

     The following exit values are returned:

     0        Successful completion.

     >0       An error occurred.
