BGP in ASA

Hi,

Why BGP is not supportive on ASA firewall.

What is the technical reason due to which it's not supported.

Thanks

BGP in ASA

I don't see any plans that we will ever support this. The ASA is a f/w and not a router and some of the changes required even for basic dynamic routing (xlate entries etc) means that proper f/w and dynamic routing don't fit so well. However, like everything, a good business case (read $$$) might make a difference. If you can make a case, then talk to your local Cisco account manager or SE. Matthew

Re: BGP in ASA

Thanks a lot.!!

But we do run dynamic routing protocols in ASA like OSPF. So why only BGP does not run on ASA..?? Why it's not compatible with ASA..??

Re: BGP in ASA

As above, lack of requirement (customer request) and, imho, BGP not a natural fit for the ASA. The ASA is a FW and BGP normally runs on large routers. Matthew
