Description of problem:
The rdisc binary in iputils is currently the "client only", although the source
has support for acting as the rdisc server as well. RDISC is the router
discovery feature of ICMP, and is used by Solaris 2.6+ and other OSes. I'm
supplying a patch to enable/fix the RDISC server support.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The rdisc.c is a port of the Sun rdisc server. The port was incomplete and only
the client worked. This patch completes the port so the server works as well.
The man page discusses the server operation.
This patch will apply against the RHL 7.2 version of iputils/rdisc.c as well.

PATH to enable/fix RDISC Server support in iputils/rdisc.c
OK, patch looks sane and makes sense, included in latest rawhide version.
Read ya, Phil
