NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

       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 /var/run/bgpd.pid.

       -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.

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

FILES

       /usr/local/sbin/bgpd
              The default location of the bgpd binary.

       /usr/local/etc/bgpd.conf
              The default location of the bgpd config file.

       $(PWD)/bgpd.log
              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.

WARNING

       This  man  page  is  intended  to be a quick reference for command line
       options. The definitive document is the Info file Quagga.

DIAGNOSTICS

       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.
