Establishing BGP sessions
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) sessions enable your VPC and on-premises networks to dynamically exchange routes. You configure BGP sessions and associate them with the connections between your networks, such as VPN tunnels or Dedicated Interconnects.
Configure a BGP session when you create a connection between your networks. For example, when you create a VPN tunnel with dynamic routing, you can also configure a BGP session. You configure settings such as your on-premises ASN, the advertised routes, and the base advertised route priority for the session. For more information, see the related product documentation:
- For Cloud VPN tunnels with dynamic routing, see creating VPN tunnels with dynamic routes in the VPN documentation.
- For information about Dedicated Interconnects, see creating VLAN attachments in the Cloud Interconnect documentation.
