FRR Routing On Nodegrid Service Router

FRRouting(FRR) is an IP routing protocol suite for Linux and Unix platforms which includes protocol daemons for BGP, IS-IS, LDP, OSPF, PIM, and RIP.

NG has the network tool vtysh(quagga/FRR) to administer the various protocol daemons in one place.


The NG v4.2.x and lesser versions supports quagga, using the shell tool vtysh or the CLI command exec quagga.

NGv5.0.x and later supports FRR on Nodegrid, using the shell tool vtysh or the CLI command exec frr.
