DESCRIPTION         top

       The iptunnel command creates configured tunnels for sending and
       receiving IPv6 or IPv4 packets that are encapsulated as the
       payload of an IPv4 datagram.

       The iptunnel command can perform one of the following operations:

       create - create a tunnel interface, which you must subsequently

       change - change an existing tunnel interface.

       delete - delete a tunnel interface. You must disable the tunnel
       before you can delete it.

       show - show the tunnel attributes (name, tunnel end points, next
       hop for tunneled packets).
