       tunnel objects are tunnels, encapsulating packets in IP packets and
       then sending them over the IP infrastructure.  The encapsulating (or
       outer) address family is specified by the -f option.  The default is

       ip tunnel add
	      add a new tunnel

       ip tunnel change
	      change an existing tunnel

       ip tunnel delete
	      destroy a tunnel

	      name NAME (default)
		     select the tunnel device name.

	      mode MODE
		     set the tunnel mode. Available modes depend on the encap‐
		     sulating address family.
		     Modes for IPv4 encapsulation available: ipip, sit, isatap
		     and gre.
		     Modes for IPv6 encapsulation available: ip6ip6, ipip6,
		     ip6gre, and any.

	      remote ADDRESS
		     set the remote endpoint of the tunnel.

	      local ADDRESS
		     set the fixed local address for tunneled packets.	It
		     must be an address on another interface of this host.

	      ttl N  set a fixed TTL N on tunneled packets.  N is a number in
		     the range 1--255. 0 is a special value meaning that pack‐
		     ets inherit the TTL value.	 The default value for IPv4
		     tunnels is: inherit.  The default value for IPv6 tunnels
		     is: 64.

	      tos T

	      dsfield T

	      tclass T
		     set the type of service (IPv4) or traffic class (IPv6)
		     field on tunneled packets, which can be specified as
		     either a two-digit hex value (e.g. c0) or a predefined
		     string (e.g. internet).  The value inherit causes the
		     field to be copied from the original IP header. The val‐
		     ues inherit/STRING or inherit/00..ff will set the field
		     to STRING or 00..ff when tunneling non-IP packets. The
		     default value is 00.

	      dev NAME
		     bind the tunnel to the device NAME so that tunneled pack‐
		     ets will only be routed via this device and will not be
		     able to escape to another device when the route to end‐
		     point changes.

		     disable Path MTU Discovery on this tunnel.	 It is enabled
		     by default.  Note that a fixed ttl is incompatible with
		     this option: tunneling with a fixed ttl always makes pmtu

	      key K

	      ikey K

	      okey K ( only GRE tunnels ) use keyed GRE with key K. K is
		     either a number or an IP address-like dotted quad.	 The
		     key parameter sets the key to use in both directions.
		     The ikey and okey parameters set different keys for input
		     and output.

	      csum, icsum, ocsum
		     ( only GRE tunnels ) generate/require checksums for tun‐
		     neled packets.  The ocsum flag calculates checksums for
		     outgoing packets.	The icsum flag requires that all input
		     packets have the correct checksum.	 The csum flag is
		     equivalent to the combination icsum ocsum.

	      seq, iseq, oseq
		     ( only GRE tunnels ) serialize packets.  The oseq flag
		     enables sequencing of outgoing packets.  The iseq flag
		     requires that all input packets are serialized.  The seq
		     flag is equivalent to the combination iseq oseq.  It
		     isn't work. Don't use it.

	      encaplim ELIM
		     ( only IPv6 tunnels ) set a fixed encapsulation limit.
		     Default is 4.

	      flowlabel FLOWLABEL
		     ( only IPv6 tunnels ) set a fixed flowlabel.

       ip tunnel prl
	      potential router list (ISATAP only)

	      dev NAME
		     mandatory device name.

	      prl-default ADDR

	      prl-nodefault ADDR

	      prl-delete ADDR
		     Add or delete ADDR as a potential router or default

       ip tunnel show
	      list tunnels This command has no arguments.
