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

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

       ripngd is a routing  component  that  works  with  the  Quagga  routing

       Options available for the ripngd 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/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.

	      The default location of the ripngd binary.

	      The default location of the ripngd config file.

	      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-

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

       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.
