You work as a network engineer for a laboratium in San Francisco which is specialized in genetic engineering. To exchange research information with other laboratoria and universities you have built a network using BGP. At this moment you have not configured any path selection for BGP and you want to make sure you have a little more control to influence your routing. Local preference is one of the BGP attributes that you are going to use to fix this.
- All IP addresses have been preconfigured for you as specified in the topology picture.
- Configure IBGP within AS 1.
- Configure EBGP between router Franklin and Jacobs.
- Configure EBGP between router Jacobs and Pinto.
- Configure EBGP between router Pinto and Franco.
- Configure EBGP between router Hunisker and Franco.
- Advertise all networks from AS1, AS2, AS3 and AS4 in BGP.
- Ensure AS1 can reach any network in AS2, AS3 or AS4.
- You are only allowed to use the local preference attribute for the upcoming tasks.
- Configure router Franklin so all networks learned through EBGP have a local preference of 500.
- Configure router Hunisker so network 188.8.131.52/24 has a local preference of 600.
- Configure router Hunisker so all networks from AS 4 have a local preference of 700.
- Configure router Hunisker so network 184.108.40.206/24 has a local preference of 800, you are not allowed to use an access-list.
It took me 1000s of hours reading books and doing labs, making mistakes over and over again until I mastered all the routing protocols for CCNP.
Would you like to be a master of routing too? In a short time without having to read 900 page books or google the answers to your questions and browsing through forums?
I collected all my knowledge and created a single ebook for you that has everything you need to know to become a master of routing.
You will learn all the secrets about BGP attributes, local preference and more.
