Zebra is a multi-server routing protocol that provides TCP/IP based routing protocols. It's meant to be used as a route server and router reflector. Not just a toolkit, it provides full routing power under a new architecture. The user can dynamically change configuration and use command line completion and history from the terminal interface. The programs supports:

  • common routing protocols RIPv1, RIPv2, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, and BGP IPv6
  • routing protocols RIPng and BGP-4+
  • IP address based filtering
  • AS path based filtering attribute modification by route map

Zebra offers true modularity: it has a process for each protocol, and each module can be upgraded separately from the others, so you can have quick upgrades as well as protection against a failure in one protocol affecting the entire system.

  • Quagga is a modern fork of Zebra.
