a Next Hop Routing Protocol routing engine for use with Quagga routing software.

Synopsis

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

Description

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

Options

Options available for the nhrpd 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/nhrpd.conf.

-g, --group group

Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga.

-h, --help

A brief message.

-i, --pid_file pid-file

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

-P, --vty_port port-number

Specify the port that the nhrpd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2608, as specified in /etc/services.

-A, --vty_addr vty-address

Specify the address that the nhrpd VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces.

-u, --user user

Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga.

-v, --version

Print the version and exit.

Files

/usr/local/sbin/nhrpd

The default location of the nhrpd binary.

/usr/local/etc/nhrpd.conf

The default location of the nhrpd config file.

$(PWD)/nhrpd.log

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

Warning

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

Diagnostics

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