RMU VLabNet 6 - Virtual Laboratory Networking Exercises
Keyed to course textbook: Andrew S. Tanenbaum, Computer
Networks, 4th ed. (Prentice Hall
Learning about the Border Gateway
See Tanenbaum, §5.6.5
Please note examples of routing constraint implementation of policies, p. 460.
The Autonomous System (AS) concept; see Tanenbaum, pp. 427, 432, 456-458.
See commands and examples at: i6230vlabnet7-BGP.htm
Quagga’s AS-number: 196614 – See http://www.quagga.net/ .
Groups: five teams of students (about 4 per team) will form five Autonomous Systems (ASs; AS64701-AS64705), with each student’s VM (VM101-VM119) serving as a router (R101-R119).
iBGP connections for students within team: meshed - every node connected to every other node; exchange of external reachability information within an Autonomous System (AS).
eBGP connections with nodes in other Autonomous Systems (ASs); exchange of reachability information between ASs.
Learn transit routing and peering between different parties that make up tier 1 of the Internet (learn how the Internet works)
number – what port number is used for
3. Identify 2-octet Autonomous System (AS) Number. What is the bit budget for this kind of address?
