Setting up Nodes

To allow your containers to talk to one another over the network, you need an external gateway protocol. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the routing protocol that can allow your containers to contact each other over large subnets or even more than one ISP.

BGP is the protocol that internet servers use to communicate to each other about which way to go, and how they should update their routing tables.

Note: You will need some basic information on your BGP setup. Run show ip bgp and show ip bgp neighbors to obtain the neighbor IP address.

To set up nodes:

  1. From Settings > Nodes (BGP) select Create Node.
  2. Enter the Hostname for the BPG node.
  3. Enter the Router IP address for your node and the Autonomous System number. For example 10.10.10.1 and 400.
  4. Enter the Neighbor IP address (where you will send the workload) and the Autonomous System number. For example 10.10.10.2 and 400.
