OpenBGP won't install routes into route table.

  • Greetings all. My system is running 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3. I have a site-to-site VPN link between a small office and AWS. The IPSEC tunnel is running perfectly and I also have OpenBGP running nearly without problems. On the AWS side I am definitely receiving my advertised prefixes. And on the office side, I can see in the OpenBGP status page that I am receiving the AWS prefixes I expect. However neither the routes page nor in the command line using "netstat -rWn" can I see those received prefixes being installed into the kernel route table. Consequently nothing is moving across the VPN link. I'm stumped as to what is going on. Everything seems to be running just fine except for that last little important step haha. Any advice would be helpful.

  • Just as a follow up, I could never get OpenBGP to work. So I switched over to FRR and used its BGP and it works perfectly. So, there ya go.
