About Dynamic Routing

Dynamic Routing allows for the exchange of routes between other routers using BGP and OSPF protocols. This allows for...

Dynamic Routing settings can be found at Config > Network > Advanced > Dynamic Routing.


Below are a few examples going from simple to more complex.

  1. Example 1.
  2. Example 2.


This section reviews the different settings and configuration options available for Dynamic Routing.

  • Dynamic Routing Enabled: Controls whether dynamic routing is enabled or disabled. The default setting is unchecked, which means dynamic routing is disabled. BGP and/or OSPF must also be enabled as well.

  • Status: Overall status of dynamic routing shows:
  • Aquired Dynamic Routes: All routes obtained from all enabled dynamic routing protocols.
  • BGP Status Information about each BGP neighbor including messages received, sent, and uptime.
  • OSPF Status Information about discovered OSPF neighbors such as their IP address and the time remaining until they next synchronize.
Dynamic Routing Status

  • BGP: Enable BGP protocol. BGP requires more maintenance than OSPF but because its an older protocol, has wider adoption.
  • Router ID: An IP-like identifier. It can be any number but is typically your WAN address.
  • Router AS: The Autonomous System (AS) number for this system. It can be any number from 1-65535 but must be unique in your BGP network.
