TCP/IP command. Gateway routing daemon. gated handles multiple routing protocols and replaces routed and any routing daemons that speak the Hello, EGP, or BGP routing protocols. gated currently handles the RIP, BGP, EGP, Hello, and OSPF routing protocols and can be configured to perform all or any combination of the five.
Parse configuration file for syntax errors, then exit gated, leaving a dump file in /usr/tmp/gated_dump.
Use alternate configuration file, config_file. Default is /etc/gated.conf.
Do not modify kernel’s routing table.
Start gated with the specified tracing options enabled. If no flags are specified, assume general. The trace flags are:
Management of policy blocks.
Includes normal, policy, route, state, task, and timer.
Includes normal and route.
The kernel interface list.
Normal protocols instances.
Lexical analyzer and parser.
Instances in which policy is applied to imported and exported routes.
Any changes to routing table.
State machine transitions.
Symbols read from kernel—note that they are read before the configuration file is parsed, so this option must be specified on the command line.
System tasks and interfaces.
Parse configuration file for errors and set exit code to indicate if there were any (1) or not (0), then exit.
Do not daemonize.
