ATMARPD(8)		     Maintenance Commands		    ATMARPD(8)

       atmarpd - ATMARP demon

       atmarpd [-b] [-d] [-D directory] [-l logfile] [-m] [-n]
       atmarpd -V

       atmarpd	implements  the	 ATMARP	 protocol  as specified in RFC1577 and
       RFC1755. Address resolution requests are sent from the kernel (using  a
       comparably  simple  protocol)  to the ATMARP demon, which then performs
       the dialog with the network.

       atmarpd can operate as an ATMARP client and as an  ATMARP  server.   If
       also supports the concurrent use of several IP over ATM interfaces.

       atmarpd	is  configured from the command line using the atmarp program.
       Unless debugging is enabled, the ATMARP table is	 written  after	 every
       change  to  the file /var/run/atmarpd.table (or to a file with the same
       name in a different directory, if the -D option is used).

       Note that atmarpd disables support for SVCs if signaling is not	avail‐
       able at start time, i.e. if atmsigd is not running.

       -b     Run  in  background  (i.e. in a forked child process) after ini‐

       -d     Enables (lots of) debugging output. By default, atmarpd is  com‐
	      parably quiet.

       -D dump_dir
	      Changes	the   directory	  where	  atmarpd   writes  its	 table
	      (atmarpd.table). By default, /var/run is used.

       -l logfile
	      Write diagnostic messages to the specified file  instead	of  to
	      standard error. The special name syslog is used to send diagnos‐
	      tics to the system logger.

       -m     Enables merging of incoming calls if the address is  known.   An
	      incoming	connection  on	which no InARP reply has been received
	      yet, but which originates from  an  ATM  address	for  which  an
	      ATMARP  entry  already  exists,  is  automatically added to that
	      entry. This assumes that there  is  a  1:1  mapping  between  IP
	      addresses	 and  ATMARP addresses. By default, this assumption is
	      not made, which frequently results in  the  setup	 of  duplicate
	      connections.  Note  that	RFC1577 requires that an ATMARP server
	      sends an InARP request on an incoming  connection.  Merging  may
	      therefore violate RFC1577 in this case.

       -n     Prints addresses in numeric format only, i.e. no address to name
	      translation is attempted.

       -V     Prints the version number of  atmarpd  on	 standard  output  and

       /var/run/atmarpd.table	ATMARP table
       /proc/atm/arp		table of currently active IP over ATM VCs

       atmarpd	removes	 ATMARP entries from the kernel table while refreshing
