Quagga BGPD

(BGP Daemon of the Quagga routing suite)

What's is in this image ?

  • Based on debian:jessie image
  • Expose port 179 (BGP peering) and 2605 (vtysh / telnet administration).


Minimal configuration (full runtime config)

$ cat bgpd.conf
Current configuration:
hostname docker-bgpd
password amazing_password
log stdout
debug bgp updates


We need to push capabilities as quagga will modprobe capabilities and try to manage some stuff in the network stack.

$ docker run --cap-add NET_ADMIN --cap-add NET_BROADCAST -d -ti -p 2605:2605 -p 179:179 pierrecdn/quagga-bgpd

You may want to :

  • expose TCP/2605 port over an administrative network only as it allows remote control on the softrouter.
  • import an existing configuration : add a volume by passing
-v /my_dir/bgpd.conf:/etc/quagga/bgpd.conf

Configuring at runtime

$ telnet <host> 2605
Trying <host>...
Connected to <host>.
Escape character is '^]'.
