To understand BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) better, we will make a basic Packet Tracer BGP Configuration Example. Because of the limited numbers of commands available on Packet Tracer, we will have a very basic configuration for our Packet Tracer BGP Configuration Example. Beside this, I will add some additional cofiguration steps that is needed for IBGP but we can not config ure on Packet Tracer.
In the configuration we will use two AS (Autonomous System) with 3 routers for each. We will use the private AS block (64512 to 65535) for this configuration, but in internet public AS numbers are used.
You can DOWNLOAD the Cisco Packet Tracer example with .pkt format At the End of This Lesson.
You can also DOWNLOAD all the Packet Tracer examples with .pkt format in Packet Tracer Labs section.
The topology that we will be used for our Packet Tracer BGP Configuration is below:
BGP Configuration Topology
For Packet Tracer BGP Configuration, firstly we need to configure the IP addresses of interfaces as other examples. To do this, as a better network engineering rule, firstly make your IP plan or, use the existing one. Acording to my basic IP plan, I used the below IPs for my interfaces.
