10.1 Starting BGP
Default configuration file of bgpd is bgpd.conf.
bgpd searches the current directory first then
/usr/local/etc/bgpd.conf. All of bgpd's command must be
configured in bgpd.conf.
bgpd specific invocation options are described below. Common
options may also be specified (see Common Invocation Options).
- ‘-p PORT’
- Set the bgp protocol's port number.
- When program terminates, retain BGP routes added by zebra.
- Specify a specific IP address for bgpd to listen on, rather than its
default of INADDR_ANY / IN6ADDR_ANY. This can be useful to constrain bgpd
to an internal address, or to run multiple bgpd processes on one host.
