Hello,

I have been trying to replace our Cisco router, with mikrotik, everything else is working apart from the bgp session with our local exchange.

I have tried to configure bgp on mikrotik, get the routes but from lan i cannot ping the exchange router, but from mikrotik interface i can ping the bgp exchange router, looks like something is still wrong on mikrotik side. as if i put the cisco all is good.


This was on cisco on our side :-

router bgp 64530
no synchronization
bgp log-neighbor-changes
network 1.2.3.0 mask 255.255.255.0
network 1.2.4.0 mask 255.255.255.0
neighbor 1.2.3.2 remote-as 64530
neighbor 1.2.3.2 description iBGP with our router
neighbor 1.2.3.2 password
neighbor 1.2.3.2 version 4
neighbor 1.2.3.2 soft-reconfiguration inbound
neighbor 1.2.3.2 prefix-list in
neighbor 1.2.3.2 prefix-list out
neighbor 1.2.3.2 maximum-prefix 500
no auto-summary
!
ip route 1.2.3.0 255.255.255.0 Null0 250
ip route 1.2.4.0 255.255.255.0 Null0 250

#######################################
on the exchange side :

router bgp 64530
no synchronization
bgp log-neighbor-changes
neighbor 1.2.3.1 remote-as 64530
neighbor 1.2.3.1 description iBGP
neighbor 1.2.3.1 password
neighbor 1.2.3.1 version 4
neighbor 1.2.3.1 next-hop-self
neighbor 1.2.3.1 soft-reconfiguration inbound
neighbor 1.2.3.1 prefix-list in
neighbor 1.2.3.1 prefix-list out
neighbor 1.2.3.1 maximum-prefix 20
no auto-summary

The BGP password is a Cisco-only feature, as far as i know. Not sure if the Mikrotik supports it.
