need help configuring vrrpd

Hi guys

I am trying to setup vrrpd between two VMs. The VMs are running redhat 6.5 and I loaded the vrrpd rpm.

[root@ssrarmfe1 tmp]# rpm -qa | grep vrrpd

but when I tried to configure it, I get an error about one of the options and I am not sure why. I don't know why -D is an issue. Did I get the wrong rpm somehow? I got it here

Below is the error.
[root@ssrarmfe1 tmp]# vrrpd -D -i eth0 -v 1 a none -p 110
[root@ssrarmfe1 tmp]# vrrpd: invalid option -- 'D'
vrrpd version 0.4
Usage: vrrpd -i ifname -v vrid [-f piddir] [-s] [-a auth] [-p prio] [-nh] ipaddr
  -h       : display this short inlined help
  -n       : Dont handle the virtual mac address
  -i ifname: the interface name to run on
  -v vrid  : the id of the virtual server [1-255]
  -s       : Switch the preemption mode (Enabled by default)
  -a auth  : (not yet implemented) set the authentification type
             auth=(none|pass/hexkey|ah/hexkey) hexkey=0x[0-9a-fA-F]+
  -p prio  : Set the priority of this host in the virtual server (dfl: 100)
  -f piddir: specify the directory where the pid file is stored (dfl: /var/run)
  -d delay : Set the advertisement interval (in sec) (dfl: 1)
  ipaddr   : the ip address(es) of the virtual server
