IPWATCHD(8)                                              IPWATCHD(8)



NAME
       ipwatchd - IP conflict detection tool for Linux

SYNOPSIS
       ipwatchd --config config_file [--debug] [--test]
       ipwatchd --version
       ipwatchd --help

DESCRIPTION
       IPwatchD  is  a  simple daemon that analyses all incoming ARP
       packets in order to detect IP conflicts.

       Default  configuration  file  uses  "automatic  configuration
       mode"  with  "passive  protection  mode" and it should be the
       best option for most systems.

       Configuration mode applies to  the  daemon  instance  and  it
       specifies  how  the list of network interfaces that should be
       monitored will be obtained. In automatic  configuration  mode
       IPwatchD  detects  all  network  interfaces automatically and
       sets passive protection mode for them. In  manual  configura‐
       tion  mode  it  is  up to the system administrator to specify
       list of interfaces  and  protection  modes  in  configuration
       file.

       Protection  mode  specifies the action that will be performed
       when IP conflict  is  detected.  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.

       IPwatchD also supports execution of user defined scripts. See
       ipwatchd.conf(5) and ipwatchd-script(1) for more details.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -c --config
              Specifies path to configuration file.

       -d --debug
              Enables  debug  mode.  Debug  information are recorded
              through syslog with "daemon" facility and "debug" pri‐
              ority.

       -t --test
              Enables  testing  mode  that is useful only for debug‐
              ging. In this mode every received ARP packet  is  con‐
              sidered to be conflicting.

       -v --version
              Prints program version to standard output.

       -h --help
              Prints short help information to standard output.

CONFIGURATION
       See ipwatchd.conf(5) for more details.
