bgpd(1M)bgpd(1M)NAMEbgpd - BGP routing daemon for IPv6
config_file] trace_options] [trace_file]
is a routing daemon that works with Route Administration Manager (RAMD)
for IPv6. This routing daemon is an implementation of Border Gateway
Protocol (BGP) for IPv6. is invoked automatically if it is enabled in
the configuration file.
BGP exchanges information across the Autonomous System (AS) and uses
the path-vector algorithm to select the best path. It conforms to and
