DESCRIPTION
       Ippool  is  used to manage information stored in the IP pools subsystem
       of IPFilter.  Configuration file information may be parsed  and  loaded
       into  the kernel, currently configured pools removed or changed as well
       as inspected.

       The command line options used are broken into two sections: the  global
       options and the instance specific options.

GLOBAL OPTIONS
       -d     Toggle debugging of processing the configuration file.

       -n     This  flag  (no-change) prevents ippool from actually making any
              ioctl calls or doing anything which would  alter  the  currently
              running kernel.

       -v     Turn verbose mode on.

COMMAND OPTIONS
       -a     Add a new data node to an existing pool in the kernel.

       -A     Add a new (empty) pool to the kernel.

       -f <file>
              Read in IP pool configuration information from the file and load
              it into the kernel.

       -F     Flush loaded pools from the kernel.

       -l     Display a list of pools currently loaded into the kernel.

       -r     Remove an existing data node from a pool in the kernel.

       -R     Remove an existing pool from within the kernel.

       -s     Display IP pool statistical information.

OPTIONS
       -i <ipaddr>[/<netmask>]
              Sets the IP address for the operation being undertaken  with  an
              all-one's  mask  or,  optionally,  a  specific  netmask given in
              either the dotted-quad notation or a single integer.

       -m <name>
              Sets the pool name for the current operation.

       -M <core>
              Specify an alternative path to /dev/kmem to retrieve statistical
              information from.

       -N <namelist>
              Specify  an  alternative  path to lookup symbol name information
              from when retrieving statistical information.

       -o <role>
              Sets the role with which this pool is  to  be  used.   Currently
              only  ipf,  auth  and  count  are  accepted as arguments to this
              option.

       -S <seed>
              Sets the hashing seed to the number  specified.   Only  for  use
              with hash type pools.

       -t <type>
              Sets the type of pool being defined.  Myst be one of tree, hash,
              group-map.

       -u     When parsing a configuration file, rather  than  load  new  pool
              data into the kernel, unload it.

FILES
       /dev/iplookup
       /etc/ippool.conf
