The in.ripngd daemon implements the RIPng routing protocol for IPv6 routers. RIPng defines the IPv6 equivalent of RIP, a widely used IPv4 routing protocol based on the Bellman-Ford distance vector algorithm. Table 1-4 shows the supported options.
n specifies the alternate port number used to send/receive RIPNG packets
Suppresses routing information
Forces routing information whether or not it is acting as a router
Suppresses use of poison reverse
If in.ripngd does not act as a router, it will only enter a default route for each router.
