Use the BGP template to apply BGP configurations per segment to all appliances in the SD-WAN fabric.
Click the edit icon next to the segment for which you want to modify the configuration.
Configure the following elements as needed:
Field Description AS Path Propagate Select Yes to enable this appliance to send the full AS path associated with a prefix to other routers and appliances, avoiding routing loops. This will provide the learned path from an external prepend between a remote BGP site to local BGP peers. Graceful Restart Select Yes to enable receiver-side graceful restart capability. EdgeConnect retains routes learned from the peer and continues to use it for forwarding (if possible) if/when a BGP peer goes down. Retained routes are considered stale routes. They will be deleted and replaced when new routes are received. Max Restart Time If Graceful Restart is enabled, specifies the maximum time in seconds to wait for a capable peer to come back after a restart or peer session failure. Stale Path Time If Graceful Restart is enabled, specifies the maximum time in seconds following a peer restart before removing stale routes associated with a peer. Next-Hop-Self Advertised route connected to a CE router that an EdgeConnect appliance learns from a PE router. Keep Alive Timer This is the interval, in seconds, between keep alive signals to a peer. Hold Timer When availability to a peer is lost, this value specifies how long to wait before dropping the session. Enable MD5 Password If applied, adds a password to authenticate TCP sessions with peers. Password / Confirm Password If the MD5 password is enabled, use these fields to specify the password.
