       bgpd - 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

       This release supports only IPv6 route exchange.

       supports the  following command-line options:

       Parses the configuration file for syntax errors
			 and  terminates exits with status 0 if the configura‐
			 tion file contains no error.  In case of  any	error,
			 exits	with  a non-zero value.	 prints the configura‐
			 tion file errors, if any, to the standard output.

			 and perform the same function.

		    If	the tracing is currently enabled, this signal suspends
