OpenBPGD walk through available?



  • I'm about to switch over to a BGP connection with the ISP and was wondering if there was a walkthrough available.  I have a test system working using carp connecting into a Cisco lab router, but there are still a few fields that may or may not be needed.

    The biggest question I have is the correct selection for neighbor parameters.  The ISP will be setting me up with default route, but does this correspond with the "announce default-route" setting under parameters or should I leave it set to "Announce all"?



  • I think you have to announce only your prefixes.
    announce self

    Your ISP will send to you a default route point to them.

    Check this manual for each option:
