hi  Emmanue

         i do get connected with quagga daemons using a socket in my program,but i don't know how to give my configuration through my,program.i first try to write commands in socket and send them 
to the daemons,but it doesn't work.

the following is my programs for simple:

#define HOST	"localhost"
#define PORT	2601

int main()
	int sock_fd, ret,i=0;
	char *msg[] ={                             //I write all my commands here
		"configure terminal",
		"interface eth0",
		"ip address",

	sock_fd = tcp_connect();// create tcp socket

	ret = send(sock_fd,msg[i],strlen(msg[i]),0); 
	if (ret == -1)
		err_exit("send error"); // my own fuction for errors
	printf("this is %d times\n",i);
	printf("successfully closed\n");
	return 1;
