I have 3 sites. A & C know about each other via BGP. A & B know about each other via static routes. Now I want to B to be able to reach C and vice versa. If I do not wish to use BGP in B, I need a static route in both B and in C. Correct?

I'm not sure about BGP, I use OSPF, but you would only need a static route in B since it has no dynamic routing protocols.

I'm fairly sure even in BGP that you should be able to forward the routes for B from A to C using BGP.

So you would only need a static route for B in C pointing to A.

You would have to use a static route, as BGP will send all undefined traffic to the default gateway (0.0.0.0). It wouldn't know how to find the network otherwise since you aren't using something to "advertise" where to send this traffic.

There is no reason I would use BGB for this design. It's slow.... and meant to separate AS. Just stick with static routing for not. Maybe OSPF later.

I don't make the rules. BGP is the only option from management :)
