qpimd aims to implement a PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast) daemon for the Quagga Routing Suite. Initially, it targets only PIM SSM (Source-Specific Multicast) mode as defined in section 4.8.2 (PIM-SSM-Only Routers) of RFC 4601. In order to deliver end-to-end multicast routing control plane, qpimd includes the router-side of IGMPv3 (RFC 3376).
librouteros is a library that can be used to communicate with devices running RouterOS, a Linux-based operating system by MikroTik. A generic and low-level interface is provided to issue arbitrary commands to the device and receive replies. For some commands, high-level abstractions are provided to simplify communication. The library is thread-safe and reentrant-safe.
