bgpd is a routing component that works with the Quagga routing engine.
Options available for the bgpd command:
Runs in daemon mode, forking and exiting from tty.
-f, --config-file config-file
Specifies the config file to use for startup. If not specified this option will
likely default to /usr/local/etc/bgpd.conf.
-g, --group group
Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga.
A brief message.
-i, --pid_file pid-file
When bgpd starts its process identifier is written to pid-file. The init system
uses the recorded PID to stop or restart bgpd. The likely default is
-p, --bgp_port bgp-port-number
Set the port that bgpd will listen to for bgp data.
-P, --vty_port port-number
Specify the port that the bgpd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2605, as speci-
fied in /etc/services.
-A, --vty_addr vty-address
Specify the address that the bgpd VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces.
-u, --user user
Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga.
When the program terminates, retain routes added by bgpd.
Print the version and exit.
The default location of the bgpd binary.
The default location of the bgpd config file.
If the bgpd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will find this
file in the directory where you started bgpd.
This man page is intended to be a quick reference for command line options. The definitive
document is the Info file Quagga.
The bgpd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log file, or through syslog to
the system logs. bgpd supports many debugging options, see the Info file, or the source
