SYNOPSIS

pimd [ -dhvZ ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -z path ] [ -P port-number ] [ -A vty-address ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]

DESCRIPTION

pimd is a protocol-independent multicast component that works with the Quagga Routing Suite.

OPTIONS

Options available for the pimd 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/pimd.conf.
-g, --group group
  Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga.
-h, --help A brief message.
-i, --pid_file pid-file
  When pimd starts its process identifier is written to pid-file. The init system uses the recorded PID to stop or restart pimd. The likely default is /var/run/pimd.pid.
-z, --socket path
  Specify the socket path for contacting the zebra daemon. The likely default is /var/run/zserv.api.
-P, --vty_port port-number
  Specify the port that the pimd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2611, as specified in /etc/services.
-A, --vty_addr vty-address
  Specify the address that the pimd VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces.
-u, --user user
  Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga.
