SYNOPSIS

bcrelay [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

bcrelay simply plays as a broadcast repeater. When bcrelay receives packets from the incomming interface, it will then relay them to the outgoing interface.

OPTIONS

-d,--daemon
  Run bcrelay as a daemon.
-h,--help
  Show help message.
-i,--incoming interface-in
  Defines from which interface broadcasts will be read.
-s,--outgoing interface-out
  Defines to which interface broadcasts will be relayed.
-n,--nolog
  Disable any logging and tracing to /var/log/messages except fatal error messages.
-s,--ipsec argument
  Defines an ipsec tunnel to be relayed to. Since ipsec tunnels terminate on the same interface, we need to define the broadcast address of the other end-point of the tunnel. This is done as ipsec0:x.x.x.255.
-v,--version
  Show the version of bcrelay.
Log messages and debugging information go to syslog as daemon.
Interfaces can be specified as regexpressions, ie. ppp[0-9]+.
