ladvd - send link layer advertisements


ladvd [ -C ] [ INTERFACE ] [ INTERFACE ] ...


ladvd sends LLDP link layer advertisements on all available interfaces. This makes connected hosts visible on managed switches. By default it will run as a non-privileged user and daemonize. Additional protocols can be enabled using the -C, -E, -F and -N options. Optionally a list of interfaces on which ladvd should transmit can be supplied.


Auto-enable protocols based on received packets.
Dump pcap-compatible packets to stdout which can be piped to tcpdump (via "| tcpdump -r -") or redirected to a file for further analysis.
Run in the foreground and send logging to stderr.
Print usage instructions.
-m address
Management adress for unnumbered interfaces, can be specified for IPv4 and IPv6.
Use management addresses specified via -m for all interfaces.
Run only once, useful for quick troubleshooting.
Receive packets, and use them for various features.
-u user
Switch to this user (defaults to ladvd)
Increase logging verbosity.
Save received peer information in interface description (requires SIOCSIFDESCR support)
-c <CC>
Specify a two-letter ISO 3166 country code (required for LLDP location support).
-l <location>
Specify the physical location of the host.
Enable CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol).
Enable EDP (Extreme Discovery Protocol).
Enable FDP (Foundry Discovery Protocol).
Enable NDP (Nortel Discovery Protocol) formerly called SynOptics Network Management Protocol (SONMP).
