Zebra


Funky cross platform routing services.

Runs on almost any POSIX compliant machine.


The External linkZebra project has forked, with External linkQuagga being the newer branch. The stated External linkgoal being to "build a more involved community around Quagga than the current centralised model of GNU Zebra."

Install notes to build from source


For External linkZebra download the External linklatest version

OR

For External linkQuagga download the External linklatest version. This is currently the preferred version.

tar zxvf <latest-version>.tar.gz 
cd <latest-version>
./configure && make && make check && make install

And it's all done :)


Have a play with the config file at /usr/local/etc/zebra.conf


You will also want to make it start at boot time.

Find a spot where you can put commands to be executed at boot time (generally /etc/rc.local or something similar).

Add: '/usr/local/sbin/zebra -d -p xxxx' (xxxx being whatever TCP port you want to run it on)


Available Binaries
