Duration: 00:24:11  File Size: 52 MB

Lesson 2

Part I: Lesson 2: Configuring an EBGP Peering Session, Downloadable Version

Lesson 2: Configuring an EBGP Peering Session

The basic elements required for establishing a simple BGP session between two peers in different autonomous systems are introduced, followed by a demonstration of the configuration commands using those elements. Peer groups and session authentication are also introduced and demonstrated as a standard BGP best practice. With the session established, the various “show” commands for observing the session are demonstrated. Finally, the BGP session states are introduced and the session is re-established with debugging used to observe a peer stepping through the states as the session is established.

We will also cover and configure basic route reflection group cluster.

Duration: 00:20:59  File Size: 49 MB

Lesson 20

Part III: Lesson 20: Confederations, Downloadable Version

Lesson 20: Confederations

This unit introduces confederations as another tool for scaling IBGP topologies, this one by creating smaller autonomous systems within the main AS, and using a variation of EBGP to communicate between these sub-ASs. The issues around confederation EBGP are discussed briefly, as are the applications of confederations and how route reflectors can be used in conjunction with confederations. Finally, a simple confederation is configured.

Duration: 00:31:29  File Size: 68 MB
