Options (flags) that can be passed anywhere in the command chain.
Show help about last valid command. For example tipc bearer--help will show bearer help and tipc --help will show general
help. The position of the option in the string is irrelevant.
Bearer identificationmedia MEDIA
Specifies the TIPC media type for a particular bearer to
operate on. Different media types have different ways of
identifying a unique bearer. For example, ib and eth identify
a bearer with a DEVICE while udp identify a bearer with a
LOCALIP and a NAMEib - Infiniband
eth - Ethernet
udp - User Datagram Protocol (UDP)
Logical bearer identifier valid for bearers on udp media.
Physical bearer device valid for bearers on eth and ib media.
The addressing domain (region) in which a bearer will
establish links and accept link establish requests.
Default link priority inherited by all links subsequently
established over a bearer. A single bearer can only host one
link to a particular node. This means the default link
priority for a bearer typically affects which bearer to use
when communicating with a particular node in an multi bearer
setup. For more info about link priority see tipc-link(8)tolerance
Default link tolerance inherited by all links subsequently
established over a bearer. For more info about link tolerance
Default link window inherited by all links subsequently
established over a bearer. For more info about the link window
size see tipc-link(8)UDP bearer optionslocalip LOCALIP
Specify a local IP v4/v6 address for a udp bearer.
Specify the local port for a udp bearer. The default port 6118
is used if no port is specified.
Specify a remote IP for a udp bearer. If no remote IP is
specified a udp bearer runs in multicast mode and tries to
auto-discover its neighbours. The multicast IP address is
generated based on the TIPC network ID. If a remote IP is
specified the udp bearer runs in point-to-point mode.
Multiple remoteip addresses can be added via the bearer add
command. Adding one or more unicast remoteip addresses to an
existing udp bearer puts the bearer in replicast mode where IP
multicast is emulated by sending multiple unicast messages to
each configured remoteip. When a peer sees a TIPC discovery
message from an unknown peer the peer address is automatically
added to the remoteip (replicast) list, thus only one side of
a link needs to be manually configured. A remoteip address
cannot be added to a multicast bearer.
Specify the remote port for a udp bearer. The default port
6118 is used if no port is specified.
