Multihop BGP

As of release 17.1.3, Avi Vantage supports multihop BGP.

To configure EBGP multihop, for each Controller a per-peer configuration knob, ebgp_multihop, has been added to configure the multihop peer. Configuration is only available through the Avi CLI at this time.

Note: The multihop peer must be configured with the same subnet as that of the interface network.

The below diagram explains all the config required in terms of

  1. Configuring the ebgp-multihop peer
  2. Static/default route requirements on the SE/intermediate-router/BGP peer.
