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


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


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


       Options available for the ripd 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/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/

       -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.


              The default location of the ripd binary.

              The default location of the ripd config file.

              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.


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


       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.
