NAME
       ospfd - an OSPFv2 routing engine for use with Quagga routing software.

SYNOPSIS
       ospfd [ -dhlv ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -P port-number ] [
       -A vty-address ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]

DESCRIPTION
       ospfd is a routing component that works with the Quagga routing engine.

OPTIONS
       Options available for the ospfd 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/ospfd.conf.

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

       -h, --help
              A brief message.

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

       -P, --vty_port port-number
              Specify  the  port  that  the  ospfd  VTY  will  listen on. This
              defaults to 2604, as specified in /etc/services.

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

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

       -a, --apiserver
              Enable OSPF apiserver. Default is disabled.

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

FILES
       /usr/local/sbin/ospfd
              The default location of the ospfd binary.

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

       $(PWD)/ospfd.log
              If  the ospfd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then
              you will find this file  in  the  directory  where  you  started
              ospfd.

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 ospfd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log  file,
       or  through  syslog  to  the system logs. ospfd supports many debugging
       options, see the Info file, or the source for details.
