BGP Multi Peer at same ISP

Thu May 05, 2022 5:47 pm

Hi guys, I wonder if someone might be able to answer me a configuration/concept question. We have recently acquired an IPv6 PI block and our own AS number and are just in the process of setting up peering with our primary ISP using RouterOS v7. The ISP has given us 2x BGP peers in their network, their primary and secondary device, for resilience purposes. However, in the BGP peer setup in RouterOS, only "RemoteAddress" is available.

Should I simply setup 2x BGP connections, 1 to each address and somehow prioritise their usage?

Thanks, Dominic.

Yes. Personally, I wouldn't bother with prioritizing, make connections to both, their network should do that part.
