Abstract: This tutorial introduces service providers to some of the features available in BGP to aid multihoming to the Internet. After an explanation of multihoming and the principles being followed in this tutorial, several examples involving different scenarios will be given. This includes the options available when multihoming to the same ISP (including RFC2270) and to different upstreams. Configurations for modifying inbound and outbound traffic flows are covered. The tutorial concludes with a case study, and an examination of the use of BGP communities by several ISPs. The configuration examples throughout this tutorial use the Cisco IOS configuration syntax.
