It supports both IPv4 and IPv6, multiple routing tables, and a BGP, RIP and OSPF routing protocols, as well as statically defined routes' and is an app in the Network & Admin category. There are five alternatives to BIRD for Linux, BSD, Windows and Mac. The best alternative is FRRouting, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like BIRD are Quagga (Free, Open Source), FreeRouter (Free), ExaBGP (Free) and XORP (Free, Open Source).
