iprsetup - Internet Protocol router setup
Sets ipforwarding and ipgateway to one, which means the system functions as an IP router. This flag cannot be combined with the -r flag. Resets ipforwarding and ipgateway to zero, which means the system does not function as an IP router. This flag cannot be combined with the -s and -f flags. Sets ipforwarding and ipgateway to one (like the -s flag), and also sets ipfirewall to one, which means the system functions as an IP firewall. Additionally, sets ipsrcroute and ipchkredirects according to the specified value. The following table shows the valid values and their meaning:
|0||Sets both ipsrcroute and ipchkredirects to zero|
|1||Sets ipsrcroute to zero and ipchkredirects to one|
|2||Sets ipsrcroute to one and ipchkredirects to zero|
|3||Sets both ipsrcroute and ipchkredirects to one|
The iprsetup command sets the ipgateway and ipforwarding variables in the running kernel allowing your system to function as an Internet Protocol router.
When ipfirewall variable is set to one, the following variables are also set: Indicates whether IP source-routed packets are accepted (1) or dropped immediately (0). Indicates whether ICMP Redirect messages are authenticated (1) or accepted with no authentication (0).
The iprsetup command is automatically executed by netsetup when you configure your network daemons. It is also executed by the /sbin/init.d/inet script when you reboot your system or restart the network on your system.
