For certain tests and demos, I occasionally need to connect my home lab to our VMW on AWS SDDC. Since I can’t justify the cost of a Direct Connect port to my home lab my options are either route or policy-based VPN. Unless there’s a specific use-case for policy-based, route-based VPN (RBVPN) is definitely my preferred method.
Currently, I’m using a pfSense router/firewall for my home lab, which meant the first step was to select which BGP package I should install. At first, I was going to configure BGP using OpenBGPD as it seemed more common, but I decided to use FRR instead.
