Good afternoon, so I have been tasked with setting up BGP on our MPLS cloud, my organization has 4 sites, 3 of which are connected through a MPLS cloud and the fourth is connected through an IPsec tunnel. The MPLS cloud was originally setup with static routes that the carrier had to create on their end to get connectivity between our sites. I have some experience with LAN and other things but I never really did much with WAN connectivity. We're making changes and it's been decided to make the change to BGP in order to take away the complexity of static routes. I did some reading on BGP and it seems pretty straight forward on what I have to do on our edge routers.
In the MPLS cloud we have three sites, Miami, Los Angeles, and our DR site and we are soon to add site Boston. Miami is our main office and it has a tunnel to our international affiliate to connect to some external resources, site Los Angeles is currently accessing those subnets through the static routes in the MPLS. I have already created another tunnel in our DR site to those same subnets and our plan is have site Los Angeles and Boston connect to those subnets through our DR path via the MPLS, our Miami site will keep the existing tunnel and they will keep accessing those resources through that tunnel. I already have the AS number from the carrier and they told me that we need to drop the static route as I add the networks in BGP. I just had a question about the commands that I need to put on our edge routers in order to publish the networks properly. The broker told me we can use our own AS numbers so I was going to use 10, 20, 30 and 40 for each site and just put the AS number for the provider. If I do the following config on each of our edge routers will that accomplish what I need to do? of course I would have to change the networks for each of the routers, or maybe do redistribute connected or redistribute static in the sites that only have the local subnets.
router bgp 10
neighbor 184.108.40.206 remote-as 10000
Thanks very much for the help, I'm a little green when it comes to WAN connectivity.
