       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/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.

	      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.
