45.Sh DESCRIPTION
46The
47.Nm
48utility transmits router renumbering request packets,
49to renumber the routers in the site network.
50.Pp
51On KAME-based systems,
52router renumbering requests are received and processed by
53.Xr rtadvd 8 .
54For other systems, refer to relevant documents.
55.Pp
56The program will daemonize itself on invocation.
57It reads configuration information from standard input if
58.Fl s
59is specified, or from
60.Ar conf_file
61if
62.Fl c Ar conf_file
63is specified.
64.Pp
65The contents of configuration information are described in
66.Xr rrenumd.conf 5 .
67.Pp
68After successful configuration,
69.Nm
70sends router renumbering
71messages periodically to configured destinations.
72Messages contain prefixes configured to be renumbered.
