BGP AD manipulation

Many a times there are situations wherein you are running two routing protocols in our case BGP and any IGP protocol and you would like to prefer the route learned by IGP over BGP. However the problem here is that by default eBGP has an AD of 20 which will take preference over the other IGP protocols (OSPF= 110, EIGRP = 90, IS-IS = 115, RIP = 120).

Lets discuss how we can make this work. There are couple of options to achieve this:

  • Changing the AD for the route learned from the specific BGP neighbor.

 

 

 

 

We will use the command: distance <AD> <neighbor> <wildcard> <optional ACL>

The ip route on the R1 :

You need to take care of asymmetric routing as this can be an issue for many applications.

  • Changing the BGP AD per address family.

 

By default, BGP has these distances:
External distance—20
Internal distance—200
Local distance—200

 

You can change the AD of all routes in the unicast, multicast or vrf address-family. This is done under the address-family section of the BGP process with the command, to change the default distance:

 

distance bgp <ebgp> <ibgp> <local routes>

 

This is not very scalable as all future BGP routes in that address-family will have their AD altered.
 Going back to our second topology, we see that the R2 router prefers BGP to reach to the network 192.168.10.0/24.

  • Using the BGP Backdoor :

 

With BGP Backdoor, BGP treats that network as a locally assigned network and thus changes the AD from 20 to 200. However it does not advertise that specific network into the BGP updates.

 

network <network> mask <network mask> backdoor
