bgpd.pl is a partial implementation of the BGP protocol (RFC1771) in Perl. It was writen as a tool to monitor BGP routing updates.
bgpd.pl is NOT written to be used as a BGP router in an operational network, in fact is has no support to propogate routing information because there is no code to send BGP UPDATE messages. bgpd.pl also does not touch the routing table of the host it runs on.
tTo install follow these commands:
download and install Net::Patricia from
cd ; tar zxvf bgpd.pl-0.05.tar.gz
