2.3 Install the Software

Installing the software to your system consists of copying the compiled programs and supporting files to a standard location. After the installation process has completed, these files have been copied from your work directory to /usr/local/bin, and /usr/local/etc.

To install the Quagga suite, issue the following command at your shell prompt: make install.

     % make install

Quagga daemons have their own terminal interface or VTY. After installation, you have to setup each beast's port number to connect to them. Please add the following entries to /etc/services.

     zebrasrv      2600/tcp		  # zebra service
     zebra         2601/tcp		  # zebra vty
     ripd          2602/tcp		  # RIPd vty
     ripngd        2603/tcp		  # RIPngd vty
     ospfd         2604/tcp		  # OSPFd vty
     bgpd          2605/tcp		  # BGPd vty
     ospf6d        2606/tcp		  # OSPF6d vty
     ospfapi       2607/tcp		  # ospfapi
     isisd         2608/tcp		  # ISISd vty

If you use a FreeBSD newer than 2.2.8, the above entries are already added to /etc/services so there is no need to add it. If you specify a port number when starting the daemon, these entries may not be needed.

You may need to make changes to the config files in /usr/local/etc/*.conf. See Config Commands.
