       pimd - a PIM routing for use with Quagga Routing Suite.


       pimd [ -dhvZ ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -z path ] [ -P port-number ] [ -A vty-
       address ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]


       pimd is a protocol-independent multicast component that  works  with  the  Quagga  Routing


       Options available for the pimd 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/pimd.conf.

       -g, --group group
              Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga.

       -h, --help
              A brief message.

       -i, --pid_file pid-file
              When pimd starts its process identifier is written to pid-file.   The  init  system
              uses   the   recorded  PID  to  stop  or  restart  pimd.   The  likely  default  is

       -z, --socket path
              Specify the socket path for contacting the zebra daemon.   The  likely  default  is

       -P, --vty_port port-number
              Specify  the  port  that  the  pimd  VTY  will listen on. This defaults to 2611, as
              specified in /etc/services.

       -A, --vty_addr vty-address
              Specify the address that the pimd VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces.

       -u, --user user
              Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga.

       -v, --version
              Print the version and exit.

       -Z, --debug_zclient
              Enable logging information for zclient debugging.


              The default location of the pimd binary.

              The default location of the pimd config file.

              The default location of the pimd pid file.

              The default location of the zebra unix socket file.

              If the pimd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will  find  this
              file in the directory where you started pimd.


       This man page is intended to be a quick reference for command line options.


       The pimd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log file, or through syslog to
       the system logs.
