The OSPF-MDR implementation for quagga OSPFv3 is an implementation of RFC 5614 (OSPF MDR), RFC 5243 (OSPF Database Exchange Optimization), and RFC 5838 (OSPFv3 Address Families) for efficient routing in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs).

This software, based on the open source Quagga Routing Suite, was originally developed by Richard Ogier and Boeing Phantom Works, and is now being maintained by the Mobile Routing project at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).


Source code and latest downloads are available on GitHub.

Consult the quagga documentation for information on how to build quagga.

The primary development platform is GNU Linux. Quagga is also supported on BSD systems. We have no experience in trying to run Quagga or the OSPF MANET extensions on Windows systems.
