To configure a BGP profile using the web interface:

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure > Routing.
  2. Select the Cloud.
  3. Click the BGP Peering tab, and click the Edit icon to reveal more fields.
  4. Enter the following information.
    • Local Autonomous System ID: a value between 1 and 4294967295

    • BGP type: iBGP or eBGP

  5. Click Add New Peer to reveal a set of fields appropriate to iBGP or eBGP.
    Note:

    Remote AS is an additional field in eBGP. BGP peering (as eBGP) is explained as follows:

    • SE placement network

    • Subnet provides reachability for peer

    • Peer BGP router’s IP address

    • Remote AS, a value between 1 and 4294967295, applies only to eBGP

    • Peer Autonomous System MD5 digest secret key

    • BFD option (on by default, enables very fast link failure detection through BFD, the only async mode is supported)

    • Advertise VIP (to this peer, on by default)

    • Advertise SNAT (to this peer, on by default)

  6. Click Save. The BGP Peering screen appears.
