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


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


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


       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/

       -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.


              The default location of the ospfd binary.

              The default location of the ospfd config file.

              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


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


       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.
