BGP Peering (IP Endpoint)

The BGP peering (IP endpoint) primitive creates a BGP peering session with a user-specified BGP neighbor addressed peer. You can use this to create a BGP peering session to a Layer 3 server running BGP connected to an Apstra virtual network.

The following parameters must be configured:

  • Neighbor ASN type (static, dynamic)
  • If the neighbor ASN type is static, the ASN
  • IPv4 AFI
  • IPv6 AFI
  • BGP Time to Live (TTL)
    • When you set TTL to 0, nothing is configured and the device defaults are used.
    • When you set TTL to 1, Cisco NX-OS and FRR-based BGP (Cumulus Linux and SONiC) render disable-connected-check. Otherwise, TTL values render ebgp-multihop on specific BGP neighbors.
  • Single-hop BFD
    • This enables BFD for the BGP peering. Multihop BFD is only supported for Junos, which is activated by default.
  • BGP Password
  • BGP Keep Alive Timer (seconds)
  • BGP Hold Time Timer (seconds)
  • IPv4 address of peer (if IPv4 AFI is enabled)
  • IPv6 address of peer (if Ipv6 AFI is enabled)

You can connect a routing policy primitive to a BGP peering (IP endpoint)
