1. Overview

Zebra is a routing software package that provides TCP/IP based routing services with routing protocols support such as RIPv1, RIPv2, RIPng, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, BGP-4, and BGP-4+ (see section 1.4 Supported RFC). Zebra also supports special BGP Route Reflector and Route Server behavior. In addition to traditional IPv4 routing protocols, Zebra also supports IPv6 routing protocols. With SNMP daemon which supports SMUX protocol, Zebra provides routing protocol MIBs (see section 15. SNMP Support).

Zebra uses an advanced software architecture to provide you with a high quality, multi server routing engine. Zebra has an interactive user interface for each routing protocol and supports common client commands. Due to this design, you can add new protocol daemons to Zebra easily. You can use Zebra library as your program's client user interface.
