BGPd loses default route on line hiccup

  • Hi all,

    I lost connection to my ISP for about 30 seconds, the internet came back up fine but the BGP lost the default route which is provided by the ISP under status/ Openbgpd routing. How can I get this to fix itself without manual intervention? This is pfsense 2.2.6, would this be fixed in the latest version?

    my config redacted:
    AS 5xxx1
    fib-update yes
    holdtime 90
    listen on 216.x.x.194
    network 162.x.x.0/24
    network 162.x.x.0/24
    neighbor 216.x.x.193 {
    descr "BELL"
    tcp md5sig password Bell2016
    remote-as 577
    local-address 216.x.x.194
    deny from any
    deny to any
    allow from 216.x.x.193
    allow to 216.x.x.193

    what routing table should look like when its working under status openbgpd routing:

    flags: * = Valid, > = Selected, I = via IBGP, A = Announced, S = Stale
    origin: i = IGP, e = EGP, ? = Incomplete

    flags destination          gateway          lpref  med aspath origin
    >            216.x.x.193    100    0 577 i
    >  162.x.x.0/24            100    0 i
    AI*>  162.x.x.0/24            100    0 i
