NAME
       ripngd - a RIPNG routing engine for use with Quagga routing software.

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

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

OPTIONS
       Options available for the ripngd 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/ripngd.conf.

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

       -h, --help
              A brief message.

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

       -P, --vty_port port-number
              Specify the port that  the  ripngd  VTY  will  listen  on.  This
              defaults to 2603, as specified in /etc/services.

       -A, --vty_addr vty-address
              Specify  the address that the ripngd 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/ripngd
              The default location of the ripngd binary.

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

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

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