BGP Commands (Quagga)
For a sample routing configuration file, see Sample BGP Routing Configuration File (Quagga).
To configure BGP, see Configure IPv4 and IPv6 Routing with BGP.
In Fireware v12.9 or higher, Fireware uses the Free Range Routing (FRR) engine. If your configuration includes Quagga commands for dynamic routing, those commands work after you upgrade to Fireware v12.9. For a list of FRR commands, see BGP Commands (FRR).
Example BGP Commands (Quagga in Fireware v12.8.x or Lower)
This list includes example Quagga commands that you might include in your BGP configuration. For a complete list of Quagga commands, see Quagga Routing Suite Documentation.
The sections must appear in the configuration file in the same order they appear in this table. Do not use BGP configuration parameters that you do not get from your ISP.
|Configure BGP Routing Daemon|
|router bgp [ASN]||Enable BGP daemon and set autonomous system number (ASN); this is supplied by your ISP.|
|bgp router-id [A.B.C.D]||Configure the router ID.|
|network [A.B.C.D/M]||Announce BGP on network: A.B.C.D/M, identifies the subnet to advertise.|
|no network [A.B.C.D/M]||Disable BGP announcements on network A.B.C.D/M|
|ipv6 bgp network [A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H/M]||Announce BGP on network.|
|ipv6 bgp aggregate-prefix [A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H/M]||Configure BGP aggregate entries.|
|timers bgp [keepalive] [holdtime]||Set the BGP keepalive time and the hold down time, in seconds. The default keepalive time is 60 seconds, and the default holdtime is 180 seconds. As a general rule, the holdtime should be three times the keepalive time.|
|Set Neighbor Properties|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] remote-as [ASN]||Set neighbor as a member of remote ASN.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] ebgp-multihop||Set neighbor on another network using EBGP multi-hop.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] version [4|4-]||Set BGP version (4, 4-) for communication with neighbor; default is 4.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] update-source [WORD]||Set the BGP session to use a specific interface for TCP connections.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] default-originate||Announce default route to BGP neighbor [A,B,C,D]. In Fireware v12.5.6 or higher, if the BGP configuration on your Firebox includes this command, and if Link Monitor detects a link failure for all WAN connections, BGP does not announce the default route to neighbors.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] port 189||Set custom TCP port to communicate with BGP neighbor [A,B,C,D].|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] send-community||Set peer send-community.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] weight 1000||Set a default weight for neighbor's [A.B.C.D] routes.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] maximum-prefix [NUMBER]||Set maximum number of prefixes allowed from this neighbor.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] timers connect [time]||Set the BGP connection timer, in seconds.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D] password [password]||Set the password for MD5 authentication.|
|Set IPv6 Address Family command mode|
Enter the IPv6 address family command mode.
neighbor [A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] activate
The neighbor activate command must be used in the address-family ipv6 mode.
This network statement here can replace the “ipv6 bgp network [A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H/M]” command. This works only within the address-family ipv6 mode.
|exit-address-family||Exit the IPv6 address family command mode.|
|ip community-list [<1-99>|<100-199>] permit AA:NN||Specify community to accept autonomous system number and network number separated by a colon.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] distribute-list [LISTNAME] [in|out]||Set distribute list and direction for peer.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] prefix-list [LISTNAME] [in|out]||To apply a prefix list to be matched to incoming advertisements or outgoing advertisements to that neighbor.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] filter-list [LISTNAME] [in|out]||To match an autonomous system path access list to incoming routes or outgoing routes.|
|neighbor [A.B.C.D|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] route-map [MAPNAME] [in|out]||To apply a route map to incoming or outgoing routes.|
|Redistribute Routes to BGP|
|redistribute static||Redistribute static routes to BGP|
|redistribute ripng||Redistribute RIPng routes to BGP|
|redistribute ospf6||Redistribute OSPFv3 routes to BGP|
|bgp cluster-id A.B.C.D||To configure the cluster ID if the BGP cluster has more than one route reflector.|
|neighbor [W.X.Y.Z|A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H] route-reflector-client||To configure the router as a BGP route reflector and configure the specified neighbor as its client.|
|Access Lists and IP Prefix Lists|
|ip prefix-list [PRELIST] permit A.B.C.D/M||Set IPv4 prefix list|
|ipv6 prefix-list [PRELIST] [deny|permit] [A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H/M|Any]||Set IPv6 prefix list|
|access-list NAME [deny|permit] A.B.C.D/M||Set IPv4 access list|
|ipv6 access-list [NAME] [deny|permit] [A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H/M|Any]||Set IPv6 access list|
|route-map [MAPNAME] [deny|permit] [N]||In conjunction with the "match" and "set" commands, this defines the conditions and actions for redistributing routes|
|match ip address prefix-list [LISTNAME]||Match the specified access-list|
|set community [A:B]||Set the BGP community attribute|
|match community [N]||Match the specified community_list|
|set local-preference [N]||Set the preference value for the autonomous system path|
