Alright, before I go to far, I'm going to present what I know, what I
need, and what I've read so far. We had a recent scare at my company, we
lost conectivity with our isp for about ten minutes because of a glitch.
Due to the nature of our company, we have to have 100% uptime, and our
SLA only guarantees us 99.999%. So, I'm currently talking with several
companies to have another T1 brought in, and I'm planning on using
OpenBGPD to provide fault tolerance. The only problem? I've never done
anything like this before. I'm already comfortable with openbsd, as
we've been using it on all of OUR routers (not the managed router from
our T1 provider... but that's going to be going away if we do this) and
we've been very happy with it due to the likes of carp and pf. I've read
the bgpd, bgpd.conf, and bgpctl man pages, I've skimmed rfc 1771, I've
read the slides presented by Henning Brauer to the Chaos Communication
Congress, and I've been googling like mad. What I'm looking for is a
thorough overview of implementing openbgpd in a situation like mine,
good resources on bgp in particular (books, websites, anything anyone
else has found useful), or just general tips that anyone would be
willing to give me. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't spent a
lot of time in the down deeps of routing, but I'm not against reading
large technical manuals.
Any help would be hot, thank you everyone.
