NAME

ldpdLabel Distribution Protocol daemon

SYNOPSIS

ldpd [-dnv] [-D macro=value] [-f file]

DESCRIPTION

ldpd is the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) daemon, which distributes MPLS label mappings between routers.
A running ldpd can be controlled with the ldpctl(8) utility.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-D macro=value
Define macro to be set to value on the command line. Overrides the definition of macro in the configuration file.
 
 
-d
Do not daemonize. If this option is specified, ldpd will run in the foreground and log to stderr.
 
 
-f file
Specify an alternative configuration file.
 
 
-n
Configtest mode. Only check the configuration file for validity.
 
 
-v
Produce more verbose output.

FILES

/etc/ldpd.conf
Default ldpd configuration file.
/var/run/ldpd.sock
UNIX-domain socket used for communication with ldpctl(8).
