Summary:  BIRD Internet Routing Daemon
Description: 
BIRD is an Internet Routing Daemon designed to support all the routing
technology used in the today's Internet or planned to be used in near
future and to have a clean extensible architecture allowing new routing
protocols to be incorporated easily. Among other features, BIRD supports:

 * both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols
 * multiple routing tables
 * the Border Gateway Protocol (BGPv4)
 * the Routing Information Protocol (RIPv2)
 * the Open Shortest Path First protocol (OSPFv2)
 * a virtual protocol for exchange of routes between different routing
   tables on a single host
 * a command-line interface allowing on-line control and inspection of
   status of the daemon
 * soft reconfiguration (no need to use complex online commands to
   change the configuration, just edit the configuration file and notify
   BIRD to re-read it and it will smoothly switch itself to the new
   configuration, not disturbing routing protocols unless they are
   affected by the configuration changes)
 * a powerful language for route filtering

BIRD has been developed at the Faculty of Math and Physics, Charles
University, Prague, Czech Republic as a student project. It can be
freely distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
