You can start, stop, control and inspect a running tincd through the tinc command. A quick example:
tinc -n netname reload
If tinc is started without a command, it will act as a shell; it will display a prompt, and commands can be entered on the prompt. If tinc is compiled with libreadline, history and command completion are available on the prompt. One can also pipe a script containing commands through tinc. In that case, lines starting with a # symbol will be ignored.
