ummm, I believe gated would be the FIRST one. I used it
10+ years ago to great benefit. I believe it had the
reference implementation for OSPF.
Worked fine on a 48MB Ultrix box with over 25000 routes!
(man! the internet was big).
Just a side note that OpenBSD is developing a BGP daemon.
Henning Brauer made the first commit in Dec 17 and it's seen
a lot of activity (in CVS) along with Claudio Jeker.
It might be of interest to take a look at that for inclusion
into NetBSD (at the least as a pkg).
Zebra's a little funky and, as I recall, GateD was always
in Beta. I await code flaws in them.
