I am using opensuse 12.3 and installed Quagga version 0.99.21-3.1.1, from the repositories,
I tried to access one of the daemons zebra by both ssh and telnet(I had to download and install telnet) .
connection is refused for telnet as it is the policy in opensuse.
with ssh, it prompts me for a password, but does not accept the root or user password. also not accepting the password in zebra.conf file. I also tried tried port 2601 which is the default for zebra.
h61n1:/ # ssh localhost 2601
bash: 2601: command not found
h61n1:/ # ssh localhost zebra
h61n1:/ # telnet localhost zebra
telnet: zebra: bad port
h61n1:/ # telnet localhost 2601
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
Also tried these commands to check if the deamons are running, but i don’t think so,
h61n1:/ # ps -ef | grep quagga
root 28177 27581 0 02:35 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto quagga
h61n1:/ # ps -ef | grep zebra
root 28179 27581 0 02:35 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto zebra
h61n1:/ # ps -ef | grep ospfd
root 28181 27581 0 02:35 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto ospfd
Most help resourses i can find for this software are for debian based stuff and i tried to follow this tutorial QUAGGA - The Easy Tutorial - How to use Quagga
But the installed files in opensuse themselves are in different folders than the ones shown in the tutorial, so i am not sure where to look for the initial configuration setup
I am pretty sure that i am missing something here, any kind of help is appreciated.
