Citrix SD-WAN – part 2

In this blog I will describe how to setup and configure BGP between Citrix SD-WAN appliance and rest of the network infrastructure when deploying Citrix SD-WAN in gateway deployment. Also I am going to show how to create custom rule to match specific flow and steer such traffic over virtual path

I am going to use below topology to setup BGP for SD-WAN in in-line deployment and test some its functionalities.

Let’s configure BGP at DC site first, for Branch side process will be exactly the same. To configure dynamic BGP peering go to Configuration->Connections->BGP enable BGP process, provide BGP router-id and AS number. Make sure that Advertise Citrix SD-WAN Routes option is tick, otherwise routes which are learned on the Citrix appliance won’t be advertised to other BGP peers.

Citrix SD-WAN basic deployment part 1

In this blog I will show you how to deployed basic Citrix SD-WAN. To demonstrate this I am going to use simple below topology.

First you have to create new configuration and to do so go to Configuration->Virtual WAN->Configuration Editor and press New to start new configuration. Then you can save this configuration file with default name or you can create your own.

The next step is to define new Sites and in this example for simplicity one site is called DC and the other is called Branch. Navigate to Configuration Editor – > Sites, and click the “+” Add button to create new sites. First lets start with DC. This example is based on the virtual appliance VPX but in real scenario you have to pickup your specific model. DC site is configured as primary MCN and branch as client.
