Intro This post looks at the pros and cons with BGP Route Reflection compared to running an iBGP full mesh. Full mesh Because iBGP routes are not propagated to iBGP sessions there must be a full mesh inside the BGP
Intro Brian McGahan from INE introduced me to something interesting the other day. BGP wedgie, what is that? I had never heard of it before although I’ve heard of such things occuring. A BGP wedgie is when a BGP configuration
I have seen in forums and in other places that some find that the default route in BGP is a bit confusing. There are multiple ways of orginating a default route in BGP. To start this is the topology used:
Unfortunately I don’t get to do much v6 at my job yet but I still like to stay updated on what is happening. Do you run any v6 in your network? If so, do you run it native or tunneled
We start out with a basic topopology of 3 routers. R2 and R3 will peer to each others loopback. I have setup OSPF for full reachability in the network. First we test connectivity. R2#ping 188.8.131.52 so lo0 Type escape sequence
I’m back from London and it’s been a great experience. Many readers are interested in what the bootcamp is like. It is a big investment to go for so it is understandable that you want to know if it will
I’m in final preparation for my second attempt and I have been doing a lot of troubleshooting scenarios lately. I created a MPLS topology in GNS3 and sent it to my friend Darren for testing. He is taking his lab
This is some notes for the post that I did on conditional BGP advertisement. I found an easier way of seeing the status for the advertise-map. It is available by looking at the neighbor status, look at the following output.
This post will describe how to do conditional advertising with BGP. In a real life scenario this can be used to only announce routes to your backup provider when your primary link is down. In a lab scenario this can
Sometimes prefixes in BGP do not get installed into the routing table, if the route is also in an IGP that might be a reason but then a RIB-failure would be indicated. This scenario shows another possible source of problems.
