BGP sessions

Hey, I'm looking for someone that can help me figure out BGP for my use case (proxies). I'm only looking for a basic configuration file to help me get started. (willing to pay)
Kind regards,
Wouter

  • What exactly are you trying to do? What are you trying to configure? BGP and proxies have nothing to do with each other by the way.

    Proxies with a BGP session? What exactly do you need a BGP session for?

    Are you trying to announce your own IPs with BGP and use it for proxies?

    So a bgp session gets established, so I can announce my ip's under my own ASN and not the server providers' asn

  • WouterTBWouterTB Member

    IP: 194.127.173.65
    Decimal: 3263147329
    Hostname: 194.127.173.65
    ASN: 62240
    ISP: Clouvider Limited
    Organization: Clouvider Limited

    So when looking up an IP I want it to show my own ASN instead of the server providers\ asn. I've been in contact with multiple providers and they all say it is possible, I just need to configure the bgp session on my end, which I can't figure out. That's why I came here to seek help.
    Please excuse any wrong use of terms etc. Since I'm very new to this all

    Do you own a ASN and at least a /24 subnet? As that will be needed to setup a bgp session.

    I do yes.

  • You need to run a BGP daemon on your end like OpenBGPD, preferably on an actual router, such as pfSense which is free https://pfsense-docs.readthedocs.io/en/latest/packages/openbgpd-package.html Otherwise you'll have to invest in expensive edge routing equipment.
    Are you planning on running full tables?

    ;-P

  • WouterTBWouterTB Member

    Full tables yeah, I'm running bird rn, the problem is I can't figure out how to configure it on my own end. I got all the things needed, just not the knowledge on how to configure it. (Why I'm seeking help here). I tried following a udemy on it but that's didn't teach me much at all haha.

    When I was starting with BGP (on DN42) I found their configuration guides on Bird to be quite useful - https://dn42.net/howto/bird - hopefully they might help make things a bit clearer

    There are a few examples in the bird wiki and as @YellowHummingbird said on dn42:

    https://dn42.net/howto/Bird
    We also have a basic config on our KB: https://fognet.ch/kb/bird-bgp-example

    And on another friendly note, BGP is not a thing to screw around with, a bad configuration can have a quite large impact, make sure you have good and working export filters!
