IPWATCHD.CONF(5)                                    IPWATCHD.CONF(5)



NAME
       ipwatchd.conf - Configuration file of IPwatchD daemon

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ipwatchd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       IPwatchD  daemon reads configuration from file specified with
       -c on command line. The file contains keyword-argument pairs,
       one per line. Lines beginning with # sign and empty lines are
       ignored.

       Possible keywords and their meanings are as follows:

       iface_configuration
              Specifies configuration mode for  network  interfaces.
              In  automatic  configuration mode IPwatchD detects all
              network interfaces automatically and sets passive pro‐
              tection  mode  for  them.  In  manual mode it is up to
              administrator to specify list of interfaces  and  pro‐
              tection  modes.  Accepted values are automatic or man‐
              ual. Default is automatic.

       iface  Specifies network interface and its  protection  mode.
              Value  is  accepted only in manual configuration mode.
              In active protection mode IPwatchD protects your  host
              before   IP   takeover  by  answering  Gratuitous  ARP
              requests received from conflicting system. In  passive
              protection  mode  it just records information about IP
              conflict through standard syslog interface.  Specified
              interface  must exist and protection mode must be pas‐
              sive or active.

       defend_interval
              Specifies minimum interval between defensive  ARPs  in
              seconds.  Accepted  value  is  number  from  0 to 600.
              Default value is 0.

       user_script
              Specifies absolute path to user-defined script  called
              by  IPwatchD when IP conflict occurs. When there is no
              script specified IPwatchD just generates syslog  event
              for  every  IP  conflict.  Specified  file must exist.
              There is no default value.

       syslog_facility
              Specifies facility for logging.  Accepted  values  are
              auth,  authpriv,  cron, daemon, kern, lpr, mail, news,
              syslog, user, uucp, local0,  local1,  local2,  local3,
              local4,  local5,  local6  and local7. Default value is
              daemon.

EXAMPLES
       Automatic configuration mode:

              iface_configuration automatic
              defend_interval 10
              user_script /usr/sbin/ipwatchd-script
              syslog_facility daemon

       Manual configuration mode:

              iface_configuration manual
              iface eth0 active
              iface eth0:0 passive
              defend_interval 10
              user_script /usr/sbin/ipwatchd-script
              syslog_facility daemon
