NAME
       ripd - a RIP routing engine for use with Quagga routing software.

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

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

OPTIONS
       Options available for the ripd command:

OPTIONS
       -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/ripd.conf.

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

       -h, --help
              A brief message.

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

       -P, --vty_port port-number
              Specify the port that the ripd VTY will listen on. This defaults
              to 2602, as specified in /etc/services.

       -A, --vty_addr vty-address
              Specify the address that the ripd 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 ripd.

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

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

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

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

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