The directory contains:
- iproute.c - "professional" routing table maintenance utility.
- rdisc.tar.gz - rdisc daemon, ported from Sun.
- routing.tgz - original Mike McLagan's route by source patch.
Currently it is obsolete.
- gated.dif-ss<NEWEST>.gz - gated-R3_6Alpha_2 fixes.
Look at README.gated
- mrouted-3.8.dif.gz - mrouted-3.8 fixes.
- rtmon.c - trivial debugging utility: reads and stores netlink.
NEWS for user.
- Policy based routing. Routing decisions are made on the basis
not only of destination address, but also source address,
TOS and incoming interface.
- Complete set of IP level control messages.
Now Linux is the only OS in the world complying to RFC requirements.
Great win 8)
- New interface addressing paradigm.
Assignment of address ranges to interface,
multiple prefixes etc. etc.
Do not bother, it is compatible with the old one. Moreover:
- You don't need to do "route add aaa.bbb.ccc... eth0" anymore,
it is done automatically.
- "Abstract" UNIX sockets and security enhancements.
This is necessary to use TIRPC and TLI emulation library.
NEWS for hacker.
- New destination cache. Flexible, robust and just beautiful.
- Network stack is reordered, simplified, optimized, a lot of bugs fixed.
(well, and new bugs were introduced, but I haven't seen them yet 8))
It is difficult to describe all the changes, look into source.
If you see this file, then this patch works 8)
