BGP and OSPF on pfSense 2.0.3



  • Hi,

    I need to run BGP and OSPF on my network of 6 pfSense machines (3 CARP enabled pairs). What are my options, I notice that openspf is marked as deprecated and Quagga (the recommended replacement) isnt compatible with openBGP? It appers that Quagga only supports OSPF (not BGP)?

    Thanks
    Alan

    At the moment we don't have a good solution for that.

    You could try your hand with OpenOSPF, but it has some quirks.

    Quagga does support BGP but we don't have a GUI for it yet.

    I had problems with OpenBGPd + Quagga in combination when they both try to route public IPs/areas
    ( I hoped that OSPF could manage our AS "internally" and BGP does the public connections)…
    They changed "foreign" routes each other and so they provoked crashes of the other service each.

    So best is to use them in non conflitctable networks... e.g. we use BGPd for public IPs and OSPF for internal networks only (192.168.x.x).
