NAME

nghook -- connect to a netgraph(4) node

SYNOPSIS

nghook [-a] [-d] path [hookname]

DESCRIPTION

nghook creates a ng_socket(4) socket type node and connects it to hook hookname of the node found at path. If hookname is omitted, ``debug'' is assumed. At this point all data written to standard input is sent to the node and all data received from the node is relayed to standard output. The options are as follows: -a Output each read packet in ASCII. -d Increase the debugging verbosity level.

HISTORY

BUGS

Although all input is read in unbuffered mode, there's no way to control the packetization of the input. DragonFly 3.9 January 19, 1999 DragonFly 3.9
