       bgpd - a BGPv4, BGPv4+, BGPv4- routing engine for use with Quagga routing software


       bgpd [ -dhrSv ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -p bgp-port-number ] [ -P port-number
       ] [ -A vty-address ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]


       bgpd is a routing component that works with the Quagga routing engine.


       Options available for the bgpd command:

       -d, --daemon
              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.

       -h, --help
              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
              specified 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.

       -r, --retain
              When the program terminates, retain routes added by bgpd.

       -S, --skip_runas
              Skip setting the process effective user and group.

       -v, --version
              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
       for details.
