Packet Tracer BGP Configuration Example
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 Packet Tracer example with .pkt format HERE.
The topology that we will be used for our Packet Tracer BGP Configuration is below:
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.
Interfaces IP Addresses
Interface Configurations for Packet Tracer BGP Configuration
RouterA1 Interface Configuration
RouterB1 Interface Configuration
RouterA2 Interface Configuration
RouterA3 Interface Configuration
RouterB2 Interface Configuration
RouterB3 Interface Configuration
BGP Configurations for Packet Tracer BGP Configuration
The exact important point of Packet Tracer BGP Configuration is here. The configuration made in this part, is for the BGP.
As I said before, because of the Packet Tracer ‘s command limit, in the configuration file, th IBGP parts are not configured, but writen here (ibgp neighbourship and route reflector commands).
