Examples

Listen for incoming NDP messages on interface eth0 to one of the interface's global unicast addresses.

$ sudo ndp -i eth0 -a global listen
$ sudo ndp -i eth0 -a 2001:db8::1 listen

Send router solicitations on interface eth0 from the interface's link-local address until a router advertisement is received.

$ sudo ndp -i eth0 -a linklocal rs

Send neighbor solicitations on interface eth0 to a neighbor's link-local address until a neighbor advertisement is received.

$ sudo ndp -i eth0 -a linklocal -t fe80::1 ns

An example of the tool sending a router solicitation and receiving a router advertisement on the WAN interface of a Ubiquiti router:

$ sudo ndp -i eth1 -a linklocal rs
ndp> interface: eth1, link-layer address: 04:18:d6:a1:ce:b8, IPv6 address: fe80::618:d6ff:fea1:ceb8
ndp rs> router solicitation:
    - source link-layer address: 04:18:d6:a1:ce:b8

ndp rs> router advertisement from: fe80::201:5cff:fe69:f246:
