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).
VyOS is a Linux distribution for routers and firewalls which features a unified commandline interface and a single configuration file, with an API for extending it. It includes BGP, OSPF, and RIP routing protocols, policy-based routing, a DHCP and caching DNS server, a Web proxy, and more. It runs on x86 physical machines and a variety of hypervisors, including KVM, Xen, VMWare, and Hyper-V. VyOS is forked from Vyatta and based on VC6.6 source code.
