qpimd aims to implement a PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast) daemon for the Quagga Routing Suite. Initially qpimd 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 complete end-to-end multicast routing control plane, qpimd also includes the router-side of IGMPv3 (RFC 3376).
