    Make a manual configuration by hand. Assuming OpenBGPD supports that.

    Normally you would not have more than one AS. The AS is you, and all your networks would be a part of that AS.

    Not even the FRR package will currently handle more than one BGP AS. It can with a manual configuration, but you'd have to craft that by hand.

    With Jimp here - normally if you acquire more public IP space you just add it to your current ASN..

    There are a variety of situations that may exist,for example

    1. I use private and public ASN  EC: i am using dn42 network and pubilc network etc.
    2. I have multiple different areas ASN ec: RIPE APNIC AND ARIN
    3. I have to replace friends or client ASN announce
    Use hand is not easy. The current use of manual and interface conflict



  • I asked my friends that many of the systems they used supported multiple ASNs. such routeOS and bird

    and why the openbgpd cant righ show like "4242423159" asn? now it is show "64734.14531"

    FRR package can't normal work now. 0.0.1 ipv6 not work. 0.0.2 all not work.

    and i can't add Local address X in FRR

    where are the FRR config file?

    To be honest I think such a configuration is beyond what pfsense designed for.. Normally you would do this in multiple VRFs which sure you could do on say a bigger cisco router.

    If manual configuration is above your skill set.. Why not break out different pfsense boxes for your different connections where you need to use different ASNs and have multiple connections, etc.  This will for sure simplify the connectivity..

    Oh noes, not this again… OpenBGPD supports raw config. So does FRR. You cannot mix GUI with raw config. Plus these packages' GUIs are designed for normal, sane use. Looking at your other threads, your use is anything but sane.



  • I think Pfsense should  be more professional. i know  BGP fans not using pfsense, but i use pfsense years hope it is better and more professional for easy use.
    I think it is easier for a professional to use it as a goal.  :)



  • the openbgpd Status how show the 32bit ASN to asplain? In accordance with the provisions should be displayed as decimal
