Packet Tracer 5.3 - BGP configuration
BGP in Packet Tracer
BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) is the core routing protocol of the Internet. It is described as a path vector protocol as BGP does not use traditional IGP (OSPF, EIGRP, RIP) metrics, but makes routing decisions based on path, network policies and/or rulesets. It maintains a table of IP networks or 'prefixes' which designate network reachability among autonomous systems (AS).
BGP protocol support has been added in Packet Tracer in the 5.3 version. This allows Cisco CCNP Route students to better understand this complex routing protocol and to be prepared for the simulation questions in the exam.
Internal BGP (iBGP) is currently not supported in Packet Tracer (see screenshot below).
