I wrote a BGP Lab post on the Networking-Forum Blog. Here’s a preview:


1. Configure the Oustside Border Router in AS 6500. Peer with ISP-1 and ISP-2. Ensure that the DMZ subnet is advertised to the internet.
2. Prevent AS 6500 from being used as a transit between ASes 1111 and 2222.
3. The link through ISP-1 is much faster than the link through ISP-2. Configure outgoing traffic to use ISP-1 as the primary, only use the link through ISP-2 if the primary link is down.
4. Configure incoming traffic to use the link through ISP-1 as the primary.
5. Ensure that NAT is setup to use both ISPs.
