       bgpd - a BGPv4, BGPv4+, BGPv4- routing engine for use with Quagga rout-
       ing software

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

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

       Options available for the bgpd 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/bgpd.conf.

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

       -h, --help
	      A brief message.

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

       -p, --bgp_port bgp-port-number
	      Set the port that bgpd will listen to for bgp data.

       -P, --vty_port port-number
	      Specify the port that the bgpd VTY will listen on. This defaults
	      to 2605, as specified in /etc/services.

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

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

	      The default location of the bgpd binary.

	      The default location of the bgpd config file.

	      If the bgpd process is config'd to output logs to a  file,  then
	      you will find this file in the directory where you started bgpd.

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

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