 Build a network router on Linux
Zebra is unique in its design because it takes a modular approach to the protocols that it manages.
The zebra daemon is the actual routing manager that controls the other modules; it also provides the primary point of interaction with the user.
The routes learned through RIP are marked with an R. Note that Zebra now knew about the networks 10.0.0.0/24 and 10.0.1.0/24, as broadcast by router A and router B. We tested this by pinging 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.1.1 from the ThinkPad Zebra router, and by pinging 10.0.2.1 (the ThinkPad dummy interface) from either router.
