Basic BGP configuration

A BGP session between routers is configured as follows:

  1. Create the BGP routing instance and specify the local AS number with the global command router bgp as-number.

  2. Specify a neighbor and the neighbor AS number with the neighbor ip-address remote-as as-number command.

  3. Activate the neighbor under the address-family to exchange address-family specific information (capability advertisement, NLRIs etc.).
