BGP

You can manage BGP routes.

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a path vector protocol that contains path information. It enables the routers to share routing information between autonomous systems (AS) so that loop-free routes can be created. ISPs generally use this protocol.

An AS is a connected group of networks or routers under the control of a single administrative entity. They share common routing policies. A unique AS number is assigned to each AS to identify them uniquely. The AS number enables information exchange between neighboring autonomous systems. You must use private AS numbers if you do not require a unique AS number. BGP private AS-numbers range from 64512 to 65535.

BGP selects a single path from the multiple advertisements received from multiple sources for the same route. When the path is selected, BGP puts it in the IP routing table and passes it to its neighbor.

Global configuration

Router ID
Specify router ID for BGP.
Example: 12.34.5.66.
Local AS
Specify the local autonomous system (AS) number.

Acceptable range: 1 to 4294967295

Neighbors

Neighbors are the routers between which a TCP connection is established. In this section, you can add, update, or delete neighbors.

Networks

This section lists all available BGP networks together with their corresponding netmasks. You can add, update, or delete networks.
