12 Configuring Quagga as a Route Server

The purpose of a Route Server is to centralize the peerings between BGP speakers. For example if we have an exchange point scenario with four BGP speakers, each of which maintaining a BGP peering with the other three we can convert it into a centralized scenario where each of the four establishes a single BGP peering against the Route Server.

We will first describe briefly the Route Server model implemented by Quagga. We will explain the commands that have been added for configuring that model. And finally we will show a full example of Quagga configured as Route Server.
