Hi 

I peer EBGP woth cisco router. Status of BGP stuck in Connect state 

Output of log is below

Hi Halo,

 

Please verify IP connectivity to the peer (61.19.61.1?) and ensure the far end is configured with the correct BGP neighbor IP etc..  It seems we don't get a response from the other side.  

show system connections | grep <peer IP>

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,
-r.

Are you able to ping the peer ip and telent on port 179? share the output of following commands:

 

show route 61.19.61.1

ping 61.19.61.1

telnet 61.19.61.1 port 179

 

Thanks,

Hi Halo, 

 

-Try matching BGP configuration in both sides , this will be useful, something like

 **Check if peer address/ AS number configured incorrectly on either router.

**Any other BGP configuration error.

 

-Is this Multihop using lo0? Try using TTL higher than 1

 

-Make you don’t have a firewall filter blocking port 179 on either side.

-Verify L3 connectivity – icmp

Hello,

Most probably Your lo0.0 filter which does not allow return packets from peer.

Thx

Hi Halo,

 

First of what is connect state of BGP?

 

In connect  state, bgp waits for a TCP conn. to be completed. It starts ConnectRetry timer and  then If it is successful to establish TCP connection then the local router will send an OPEN message to the bgp peer(external or internal) and the BGP state machine transitions to the OpenSent state. However, if the TCP connection attempt fails, the local bgp router resets the ConnectRetry timer and transitions to the Active state. Additionally, depending on the failure condition, the local router could also revert back to the Idle state. Additionally, if the ConnectRetry timer reaches 0 while the local router is in the Connect state, the timer is reset and another connection attempt is made. In this case, the local router remains in the Connect state.

 

In your case TCP connection establishment is the problem.

Possiblity 1.

   Local router is sending TCP connection request to 61.19.61.1, but peer is not able to process it.

        1. Could be configuration issue for peering address on Cisco router.

        2. Check Policy on Cisco router if any access-list configured to deny packet from 61.19.61.1 on port 179(BGP application port).

        3. Cisco router is busy in processing other request which is queing TCP request from local peer. Check CPU utilization or other hw problem could be there.

       4. Check for any CoPP policy on cisco router.

 

Possiblity 2.

       Local router is sending TCP connection request to 61.19.61.1, but peer is not able to recieve it on their side.

            1. It could be issue on link congestion, check end-end path by continues ping, encountering any ping loss. 

            2. If possible check if any Firewall inbetween check the policy in it, port 179 is allowed for communication between local router and cisco router.

          3. Check for any QoS policy.

       

Please feel free to reply back with any queries...

For how much time, it is staying in Connect State or it stucked in this state for long(go for clear bgp; hsad reset). I am considering ur BGP Config is ok at both end.

Also is ConnectRetryTimer reinitiating or not???
