BGP Routing -- Need Help

  BGP Lab

=========

Hello friends

I just started with eBGP & and I have configured this LAB. In Lab there are four Routers R1,R2,R3 & R4.

R1 & R2 (AS 1600)are iBGP neighbors, also R1 is having EBGP peer with R3 (AS 1700) & R2 is having EBGP peer with R4 (AS 1800).

All the router are configured with some loopbacks & all loops are adverted in BGP process.

Now R1 can see loopbacks on R4 but can not ping R4 routes, same with R2 it can see R3 loops but not able to ping. R3 can not see routes on R4 & vice verse.

I am attaching Lab pic & putting running config so you may see what I have configured & please tell me where i am wrong & what need to be done

Thanking you in advance..

BGP Routing -- Need Help

Hi,

your issue is related to the next-hop of the eBGP prefixes between iBGP peers - currently the next hop is unknown

Solution 1 :

R1

router bgp 1600

nei 172.16.20.1 next-hop-self

end

clear ip bgp * soft

R2

router bgp 1600

nei 172.16.10.1 next-hop-self

end

clear ip bgp * soft

Solution 2 :

R1

router bgp 1600

net 1.150.14.0 mask 255.255.255.252

R2

router bgp 1600

net 2.150.14.0 mask 255.255.255.252

BGP Routing -- Need Help

Thank You Dan for you kind help…

I hope you won’t mind it I have this question. If you may explain it

Actually I tired that solution last night but failed,  I tried again & still no success. Than I thought it is must be something wrong between R1 & R2.

I enable debug on R4 & ping from R1 & the echo was not even reaching in R4 from R1. Next I ping from R2 to R4 with source loop 1 which was successful. Next Ping R2 to R4 with source s0/0 it was dest to 62.150.214.2 unsuccessful.

Then I check my BGP table & 62.150.214.2 was not there, because I did not add that in to BGP process I though Loopback will do that cause I added loop 1 in to BGP & it was update source.

Now I added 62.150.214.0/30 in to bgp & it works. All routers can see routes on remote routers.

But I am still not very sure why loopback have not did that when the neighbour relation are formed with Loopback.

Once again

Thanks

BGP Routing -- Need Help

Hi,

From R1 to R4 the issue is that R2 is advertising the prefixes from R4 without changing the next-hop. So R1 will receive R4's prefix with R4 next-hop.

The real issue is that R1 does not have any prefix in the routing table pointing to R4's next-hop (2.150.14.2). If you look in the R1's BGP table for the R4's prefix you will see that the next-hop is maked as inaccesible. That's why the solution included the advertisement of the interconnection prefixes between R1-R3 and R2-R4 into BGP.

R2   show ip bgp 150.16.8.0

R1    show ip bgp 180.25.9.0

You have some mistakes in the BGP config - the mask of loopback1 prefixes of both R1 and R2 are configured wrong on bgp, therefore those 2 prefixes will not be advertised into BGP. You can modify the Loopback's 1 netmask to /24 or you can modifiy the bgp command network for 172.16.20.1 and 172.16.10.1 to /32.

Re: BGP Routing -- Need Help

Thanks you so much sir it was very helpful.....I have changed loop address & removed the serial links from bgp process & it works.....

Best Regards
