Solaris 10 10/08 Release Notes

Standalone Router Discovery

The /usr/sbin/in.rdisc implementation of the IPv4 ICMP Router Discovery protocol might not be supported in a future release of the Solaris software. A near-equivalent version of this protocol, which is implemented as a component of /usr/sbin/in.routed, supports an enhanced administrative interface. The /usr/sbin/in.routed component supports the implementation of Routing Information Protocol (RIP) version 2. The /usr/sbin/in.routed component also has the ability to distinguish Mobile IP advertisements from Router Discovery messages.
